Greetings, I am out of my depth. I hope someone here can help out an aquarium novice.
I have Potassium Gluconate powder and Fe-EDTA 13,3%. I would like to mix them into water solution and add to my aquarium with some 250L of water in it. But I cannot figure out amounts for the solution and...
So first let me start off saying that on certain forums many members are bouncing around the idea that having potassium chloride or calcium chloride dosed will provide chloride as a macro nutrient, even to the extent of a recommended ppm of 5-20... The claim is it helps move nutrients around the...
Hello all! I am new to this forum but not really, I've been using it for guidance for about two years since I began this journey. I have a 125g planted high tech community tank (had, rather). I had a mishap about a month ago where I did my regular 50% water change on Sunday. Except this time all...
I am not so beginner in terms of aquarium experience but recently just plunges to have a planted tank set up for my discus.
I want to know what should be my paramaters in Nitrate, Phosphate, Potassium etc for me to have 2x a month of 50% water change.
I do not know if this is better...
I recently bought a TDS meter and measured my tap water at 80 TDS. Just before a water change a week ago my TDS was at 260 ppm. I changed 50% of water, and as you'd expect TDS was around 170ppm. A week later, I did another 50% water change but now TDS is at 200, so it is steadily...
I was wondering about raising my GH during water changes.
The water in my tank is at 7GH (due to seiryu stone). The water out of my tap is 1GH.
If I change 5 gallons of water on a 20 gallon tank what should I be raising the GH to to maintain a stable environment?
I usually dose my tap to...
So I have two tanks, one is 130L one is 70L. Medium to heavy stocked with anubias, hygrophilia siamensis, val and some other plants.
I have been (double) dosing PPS. At this amount per week for PPS pro:
My tanks water parameters...
I am trying to copy Burr740's Micro-mix v11.15 (Sorry for that :p) but with a small change.
Net water volume in my tank is 445L (Tank+Sump) with densely packed stem nutrient hoggers, ~170 PAR at substrate level.
CURRENT water parameters and dosing regime:
100% RO water
GH: ~ 3-4...
I am in the process of setting up a 500 liter tank with CO2, high light and EI dosing vía doing pumps. My pump has 4 dosing channels and I started thinking about running an additional channel through a line that winds underneath the substrate. It would use the same macro...
I could use some help, please! Which fertilizing method should I go with for my low tech tanks?
I am a low tech girl, I do NOT have the understanding of it all, the money, or the energy or memory to keep up with anything complex or expensive.
-I have a fish room of about 20 or so tanks from 10...
I own a 75G Discus aquarium with C02 injection and a daily dosage of liquid fertlizant (Nlogic Thrive 3ml/day). All my plants grow well with one exception, my Echinodorus ... No presence of algae. I have done very well in the past with this kind of plant but it is not the case anymore so...
I'm using 100% RO water.

Hello everyone, I am from bad English coming to Taiwan.

My ROTALA still appears twised
I did a lot of experiments and it lasted for a while.
But still failed
Normal and abnormal are planted in the same block

Ive started using complete 100 % RO water because the water we have here is no less than liquid metal.
RO Water KH is 0 and TDS is around 110-120.

I dose DIY fertz but 2 things are causing trouble
2) Traces like Chloride, Nickel (No such deficiencies i...
I don't know how much to dose N P K, Micro ppm in my 150 liter with just Crypts??
I'm using a Twinstar 900s it's on for 7 hours -- a CO2 reactor it starts 1 1/2 hrs before lights on and turns off 1 hr before lights off.
I'm dosing daily 3ppm KNO3, 1ppm KH2PO4, 1ppm K2SO4 and .2ppm CSMB+
I am completely new to EI dosing. I have tried, and failed, to grow aquarium plants in the past, but have just replanted my tank and am determined to get it to work. I hope you can help me with fertilizers.
I have ordered a "starter kit" for EI dosing (from...
I don't know if something is missing or not.
In the two pictures with the rotala macrantra I have some green spots (like stamps) on few leaves.
Also in my Ludwigia red I see one leaf with this green spot. Also my new leaves are growing smaller but only this plant has this issue.
I have this Ammannia praetermissa from dennerle. i got this plant all red. The new leaves coming green but I think is beacause of my nitrates are high ( don'thave problem with this). My problem is the new leaves show some darker colour on the edges. Can you recognize if I have any deficiency...
