Since the ammonia spike disappeared I am about to. I want to add about 10 Amano shrimps and and a couple of different Nerites quite soon. The rhizo is something I think I can fix eventually. Wether it's with the help of a clean up crew or something else.. It's mainly the dying plants that are making me nervous ATM. 😅Notwithstanding ferts/CO2, what do you have in the way of clean-up crew? Any CRS/Amanos/Nerites? They are not an answer on their own, but in my limited experience to-date they are part of an answer.
I didn't yet, but I certainly should focus on this now.Hi all,
That looks like you might have some iron (Fe) issues, are you using the FeDTPA?
Also, eventually I want to get my rotalas (rotundifolia, colorate, hra) go red. So based on what I've read with other peoples experiences, I will eventually work to more intensive lighting (when I tackled the rhizo) and go with lower nitrate levels.
So to sum things up, I like to lower my nitrates, increase the iron (with fe DTPA) and maybe increase the phosphates a little as well (since I often read 0 ppm and noticed some GSA). Bearing this in mind, I probably should switch to dry salts instead of using liquid brand ferts? I still prefer lean dosing instead of the EI method as I'm not chasing fast growth, but just healthy growth.
What amount of dosing per week would be my targets on everything if I use dry salts? Can't find much info on dosing dry salts with lean dosing in mind.
