    I just planted up my 135gal tank for the first time while doing a 50% WC.

    After finishing I mixed the ferts in 6-cups of tank water and dosed.

    Then refilled the tank with water.

    The aquarium was cloudy due the large planting project so I thought to give it a boost of clarity with the product "Kent Pro Clear".

    Does "Kent Pro Clear" water clarifier inhibit the use of dry fertilizers?


    Ferts used:

    1. CSM+B - 3.0grams
    2. KNO3 - 4.0grams
    3. K2SO4 - 2.0grams
    4. KH2PO4 - 0.3grams

    6:21 PM is designed to remove particulate turbidity so yes to some degree it may depending on the short term solubility of those nutrients ? and depending on the polymer process used it could also chelate those nutrients in the same manner.

    Personally I shy away from adding/contributing artificial polymers and esters to a living enviornment...But Hey ! That's just Me. ;)

    "Natural" Aquarium........"Artificial" Polymer. :eek: Notice anything ?

    Be Patient. Fast is not always Best ! HTH. Prof M
