Can these be added together w/out any problems?? I need more Fe and incr. my Micro isn't working well...So I found Flourish w/ Iron and it's not too spendy....so I want to add that to my Micro...either CSM-B or TMG. Ya think it'll all combine well w/out any settling??

thanks!

Thanks Edward for helping out...was beginning to think I was on my own on this topic :)

Plants like my Myrio Matogrossense and dwarf sag have yellowing still...the latter responded well to Flourish root tabs but ran out before trying on the Myrio. Only the very tip is green. I've incr. my CSM-B to 25ml/every other day...and recently have tried some TMG that's now at 30ml's/every other day but still seem quite Fe deficient.

So anyway, that's why. But I have only two peristaltic pumps right now and hence, why I wanted to combine the two. On the other hand, if I can change the scheduling somehow and only give the Micro or the Macros once a wk., that'd free up a pump for the Flourish Iron alone. .....OR, can I use say Fe pills from the pharmacy and plant them in the substrate? Just looking for options.

Thanks again for the help Edward!!

Thanks guys for the help. Good to know I can mix them if I need to. Though it sounds like you guys are suggesting it's not Fe. Boy...I can read SO much better plants in soil and their needs lol Still learning, very slowly apparantly lol, the aquatic plants' signs and symptoms.

But anyway, yes Jeff, I'll be at the meet and we can discuss it more there. But 1. Yes, using Equil. 1/4tsp per 5gals as sugg. 2 Had to decr. the HCO3 to 1/4tsp per 10 gals for a nice Kh of 5. 3. Haven't checked NO3 since the very beginning when I was having no luck getting a good reading after dumping huge quantities of NO3. Tee'd me off and I wanted to just be able to adjust 'read' what the plants' needs are and go from there. Just, as noted above, not quite there yet hehe
But anyway, I'm dosing 16tsp of kno3 and 1.5tsp of monophos every other day and thats a ratio of 9...a recent bump up actually.
I'll check the NO3 before I come.

LOL, no, those amounts are added to 500mls of water and then 24mls are given every other day. I bought some peristaltic pumps, one for macros and one for micros.
