| | First high light tank - question about dosing
I got my first 3wpg, CO2 enriched tank up and running and have been very pleased so far. Shortly after adding a lot of plants, I started noticing pearling for the first time. A lot more exciting than pictures!
Not knowing really how much to dose of anything, I put in what should be about 10ppm N, .5ppm P, unknown ppm K, and "some" Flourish (not really into measuring). Since things are growing in and the tank is really still cycling (only 6 otos at this point), I figured all is subject to change.
My basic dosing thought was that as long as everything is pearling when I get home in the evening, there must be "enough" of everything. Is this naive?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
