    Fab most Nutrients are coming from the cal aqua soil at the moment, so far I've dosed NO micros and only half Calculator recommend ei macros. (KNO3 & K2HPO4) I'll get the precise amounts when possible.

    I'm away for 4 more days so it's on auto once again :)

    I don't feel so bad now.
    Merklap?, I figured a misspelled word or a new fabricated term by someone.
    Sometimes google is correct?:D

    Quick update on the algae..

    Been away for just over four days, leaving the tank on auto pilot.

    Good news is after removing the algae, excel spot dosing and adjusting the flow on the effected area the alage has gone with no signs of regrowth.

    So for reference the only thing that is different is the flow, Everything else is the same as what it was.

    Haha good job we have Google :) as mentioned it was a fellow Hobbiest that mentioned the word merklap when I used the word sampler.

    From what I understand he said it comes from colour samplers?

    No idea :) but now its a new type of aquascape :rolleyes:

    Lol, here is a quick phone shot..

    Algae never came back so that's good and it was taken a few hours after I did a big trim, move, replant.

    I'm hoping to get the spaces filled in as soon as the other plants arrive.
