I have a 30 long tank, CO2 Injected (pressurized bottle), 110 watt cf light.
It's been set up for about two months. everything is going well, very little
algae. My parameters are ph 6.5- 6.7 NO3: 4ppm PO4 : .2ppm KH: 5 GH: 7
FE: 0 I add the recomended dose of seachem iron along with flourish
everyday. about a half hour later i test for iron using the seachem test and
the results are about .4. I then test 24 hours later and the iron is 0, so I
repeat the process. I have been doing this for about 2 weeks. Is this normal
to be using this much Iron? I have to add more Iron than macronutients. Am I
right by adding all the micronutients even though I am only testing for Iron?
I have all easy, fast growing plants right now- val, cambomba, swords- I also
have microsword and moneywort. My microsword is the only plant that is
suffering. Is this because of the Iron? Also one other question, My cf is
made by all glass and they say the bulbs are 9325K, should I switch them out
for 5500K bulbs?
Btw, this is my first real planted tank and I'm having great sucess thanks to
this list. I appreciate all the help
