You can dry dose all your macros. Just use the Fertilator to figure out what the amount is for the desired dosage for each. Order a set of mini measuring spoons from Greg when you order the macros.turtlehead said:I see, I want it to be convient though and not too messy, can I mix it up and store it? what do you guys think for ADA brighty k lights?
Whether you need to dose macros is totally dependant on your tank setup. Low light with slow growing plant should be sustainable with just fish waste. Get above 2.5 wpg and you'll start to need CO2 and macro dosing (as well as the micros from Flourish/TMG/CSM+B).turtlehead said:do I actually even need nkp since its provided in fish waste and food? and flourish has some of it?
I have riccia and hairgrass, dosing 1.5ml of flourish every monday and saturday, 1ml of iron wednesday
100% tap water
However, going the Flourish-line route will get expensive which is why ordering dry chemical ferts from gregwatson.com is so highly recommended.Flourish™ is a comprehensive plant supplement for the natural freshwater aquarium. It contains a rich assortment of important micro elements, trace elements and other nutrients. These include calcium, magnesium, iron and other important elements that have been shown to be beneficial to aquatic plants. For macro element (NPK) fertilization, use Flourish Nitrogen™, Flourish Phosphorus™ or Flourish Potassium™ as needed.
