Re: severe algae
Add KNO3 at 1/8 th teaspoon 3 x a week
That's the really weird thing. The Lamotte test that
registered o was taken a day after I put in two
Seachem scoops that I'm told measure about 1/8th
teaspoon or .87 grams. My cheap AP one also says
How can this be?
>Add K2PO4 at a BB or two size 2 x a week.
I have discus buffer for that. My Red Sea kit is crap
I know. Is the Seachem one good enough for me? I
could afford that one... Steve Dixon seemed to like
Is it easy to read?
>flourish/TMG at 5 mls 3 x a week.
That's a lot of Flourish. Twice what I'm adding now.

I'm not quite sure how the PO4 is. The Red Sea kit
says about .5 Not bad if I can trust that kit. But I
probably can't. The KH of tapwater is about
3.something. If the GH is 10, I guess I could mix
less tap with the distilled (6 gallons tap and 4
distilled instead of 7-8 tap and 2-3 distilled) and
add calcium carbonate to get the KH where I want.
