Posted this in an ancient thread but no response lol.


WOULD PPS Pro be sufficient with O+ root tabs?
Could I cut the dosing to say 2x a week?
Still achieve reasonable growth? Not trying to grow a jungle.
I do NOT want to be doing 50% changes a week with 3x55 and a 20 on top.
Wife would murder me.
So being due to prices of Seachem various products slaughtering me with this many tanks I want to switch to dry ferts mix your own which is the reason for this sudden line of questioning..

There's no telling how much nutrients the root tabs release. You can get dry ferts which are cheaper than Seachem.
Do what is convenient for you. No need to follow a system dogmatically. CO2 is more important.

No CO2 I am all low tech low/med light.
Yes I would like to switch to dry ferts for reasons of economy.
I just wondered if O+ tabs and the mixed dry ferts say 2x a week to avoid unnecessary water changes as I have very hard water would be sufficient.
That's why the EI is certainly out.
My drift wood lowers my pH a bit but out of tap is 8.6 and constant water changes ruin my lower pH.
