    Hi Tom,

    Is there a concern in a non-C02/ non Excel lower light setup? I've been waiting for months for the KH to drop and it finally did to "0". I have read here that this would happen, so should I leave it as is?

    This set up has Lenordite below inert substrate and was started way back with mulm and peat. Growth is slow ,like it should be, but steady:D Very few fertz.

    So what do you think?

    Thanks, Chris

    This is pretty much what should occur.

    Leave things, the only other things: GH should not drop below 2 or so, you might add some K+(you can use GH booster or K2SO4) and maybe a little trace element mix like TMG etc, actually TMG would do the best for your case.
    It has some K and Mg as well as the traces.

    Add maybe 2x a week, 2 mls per 80 liters.


    Regards,
