I like that yet another calc because it gives you the ppm you should be shooting for on the EI, which I think I am weighing against the Seachem dosing chart at http://www.seachem.com/support/PlantDoseChart.pdf
. Thoughts on which is better would be appreciated.
I do have one question though on the EI calcs. It seems that the calc shoots for an iron ppm when adding the Seachem Comp. Can anybody explain how I can measure the Comp when I am already dosing iron? I see a disastrous overdosing taking place. By the way, does the EI assume a heavily planted aquarium?
I posted elsewhere a question about my CO2 setup (pressurized), and wanted to know if running CO2 from a diffuser into the intake for the HOB filter would affect the beneficial bacteria. I have plenty of spare power heads, and can hook one up above the diffuser to help disseminate the CO2 if it would be more effective. I apologize in advance if this isn't the correct forum, but I got great responses from all of you earlier.
I am finding the challenge of developing my heavily planted tank addicting to say the least. I see great growth and pearling on some plants, especially the bright green riccia and green/pink rotundifola, which is motivating me to get the same from all the plants. The science is fascinating given the intertwined nature of the entire system.
Thanks again everybody!
