Iron Tester etc.
2 Questions :
1. I found a bottle ( in the clearance dept. ) , of Super Chelated
It`s a "Macro-Algae Supplement with Manganese for Reef Type Marine
Dosage is 8 drops a day . Contains deionized water , chelated iron ,
salts ofpotassium ,
boron , manganese , magnesium , trace elements , and inorganic
Can this product be safely used in a freshwater/planted/stocked
2. I just got one of the SERA FE Test Kits . I follow the instructions
about using the
regent , but I can`t get any color to compare with the chart . I`ve
added the correct
amount of Iron supplement from another source ( not the marine stuff )
, but still get no color .
I`ve been adding iron and PMDD due to a yellowing of leaves and a near
of growth ....after seeing no Iron in my testing . Still no iron .
What am I doing wrong with the test kit ? Is it supposed to be such a
pale color change that
it`s difficult to notice ? I check it at 3 minute intervals for 5 tries
and get 0 iron .
Could that be , even though I`m adding the iron ? I`ve got quite a few
fast growing plants
so maybe that`s it...I don`t know at this point .
