Hello,
My roommate had the water tested by aquatek labs but I don’t really understand it. It shows there is a radon in the water. My fish are fine for over 3 yrs but aquatic plants often die. I would like to know if I. Red to add anything to my aquariums also.
I appreciate any help and advice. Thank you

For plants, you will need to add both macro (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) and micro-nutrients (iron, manganese, boron, et al.). There are numerous aquarium plant fertilizers available at your LFS, or you can roll your own (e.g., the PPS-pro method).

You may also need to add calcium and magnesium as those are low, but regular water changes will also help replenish Ca and Mg.

Otherwise, your water is excellent.

Thrive all in one has it all--macro- and micro-nutrients. Except for maybe Ca and Mg, no need to dose with anything else.

Seachem Flourish only contains micronutrients. No need to dose with both Thrive and Flourish, Thrive is enough.
