| | Which method would be best for me?
I used to do IE. But I'm wondering if that's the best for my situation.
I have plants in ALL my tanks. Floating, rooted, etc. And I usually use pool filter sand substrate.
I try for medium to high light, but low tech. Eventually I'll go with LEDs. I'm not interested in CO2.
I have soft water well water and it's acidic. 6.8 pH, 3 kh, and 8 gh. I don't know my TDS yet.
I also keep hard water cichlids and I prefer fertilizers to marine salt for trace nutrients for them, since Malawi is low in salinity.
I also have some shrimp tanks.
Anyways, I sometimes fall behind on my water changes. I try to keep stocking low, but even so, I can't also follow a schedule. I have some health issues.
Which fertilizer method would be the best (and safest) for my situation?
