I have been dosing for a couple of weeks and noticed the new growth on my swords is light green. Do I need to dose more micros or just only Iron or more macros?
I use Plant-Prod Chelated Micronutrient Mix which is almost the same as Plantex CSM+B, and the quantity is here. Difference is in chelating.What is the receipt you use for mixing micro solution? I am using green leaf aquarium micro fertilizers.
Assuming values are in ppm as CaCO3 equivalent, thenGh 75
Is there whole house water filter? When your tap TDS is 180 ppm as NaCl then aquarium should be maintain at no more then 180 + 50 = 230 ppm as NaCl.My tap is 180 ppm. My water change was done with tap water. I stopped dosing on last Thursday and the plants seem to be growing better with no algae on new growth. My tank was 257 ppm tonight.
What do you use?I never replace evaporated water with tap
This is getting complicated.i have a water softner with a bypass valve. The only water that is soft is hot water to match tank temp. FYI when I looked at my micro bottle it had white solid settle out of it. My tank ph is 6.4 with ph controller. Drop check is light green. My TDS is 268. Should I do a water change? I am still double dosing excel to control bba. I just connected the ph controller this past Friday.
