Hi Tom,

I made up a batch of the DIY Tropica Plant Nutrition, the "Good Sh-t" formula of Plantex + DTPA and Manganese with the 10ml HCL and 20ml Excel added to curb fungus in the 500l bottle. It's great stuff and I did use real TPN as an iron supplement in my reef system to boost Fe for my seagrass and macros. Is there anything in this DIY formula that's not so good for a reef tank?

Thanks!

Should be fine, start with a little bit, then work up, do not add the full planted does, start with 1/10th, watch closely.
There are many costly corals etc, you do not want to fry any of them.
