    Hello! After winning the battle against algae i decide to add 1/4 of EI, so yesterday i add 3ppm of No3 and 0.5ppm od Po4! The surprise is that today i measured No3 and Po4 and they were in 0! Is this possible? Plants can take No3 and Po4 so fast? Should i have to add more?


    More details. 5 gallon and 1,5 watt per gallon excel only tank.


    thanks to you all, you all are a great help to me! happy new year!!! :) :) :) :):cool::cool::cool:

    Unlikely. Consumer test kits are not especially accurate. The more important point is that you added some nutrients -- It isn't necessary to have some specific number from a test kit.


    How do the plants look?

    Watch the plants for awhile. After about 2-3 weeks of every day or every other day dosing, see what the plants say about the level of feeding. Plants are fairly slow to make changes. Make small changes. Allow the plants to catch up and then make more small changes. Slow and steady.
