    I'm using chelated iron and Plantex CSM+B for dosing iron, typically 1/32 tsp each every other day in my 55 gallon. My impellers (especially the magnets) are getting a brownish orange residue that resembles the chelated iron. Is this something to worry about? Am I dosing too much? Do others get this too?


    Thanks,


    John

    I'd not worry about it.
    I've added all sort of iron items into my tanks over the years, never an issue near as I or anyone else could tell.
