    would it be disastarous to od TPN+?
    ive been adding 3mil per day and plants have shown some growth but now ive put a fair few more plants in and was wondering weither to up the TPN+,what will happen if i over do it?
    was going to up it to 5mil a day and see how things go.
    should i be dosing anything else?

    150-160ish litre tank allowing for substrate,wood etc
    FE co2,drop checker light green
    all plants swaying in the flow
    2x25w t5's on for 8 hours a day

    any advice/experiences?

    cheers dave

    Dose to your hearts content. Higher dosing means higher maintenance due to higher growth rates.

    Cheers,

    5ml still sounds low. I do 3ml per day in 60l.
