    I have changed the water 2 days ago and I haven't dosed the fertilizers yet. Maybe, using Excel, the 1,5 wpg aren't enough. I could add another T5 to bring the wpg up to 2,3. What do you thing? Maybe there has been too much excel/fertilisers and too little lighting.
    here is a picture of the algae I see growing on some little stones all over the tank: View attachment 2920

    Hello

    As I understand it Seachem Phosphorus is dissolved KH2PO4. I guess if Easy Life products are easily available in Italy you could use Easy Life Fosfo and maybe Nitro too. They keep the ingridients a secret but I'd guess it's the same thing

    Cheers

    Anhydride of Phosphoric Acid

    Hi,

    I think the Easy-Life Fosfo probably just fine, though I do not like people who are afraid to list chemicals.

    I can based on the label assure you it is not KH[SUB]2[/SUB]PO[SUB]4[/SUB] or K[SUB]2[/SUB]HPO[SUB]4[/SUB] or anything with Potassium.
    :)

    My best guess based on the label is Diphosphorus Pentoxide, P[SUB]2[/SUB]O[SUB]5[/SUB], a common desiccant.
    :cool:
