re: Plant Fertilizer
I have been using Flourish and have never tried TMG. Along with it I am
using Flourish Potassium & Excel. Flourish provide all the neccessry
micro-nutrients. However, I do not have any source of Potassium (K). I
tried to find KNO3 or K2SO4 in my LFS and horiculture shops but failed to
find any. (Maybe some Singaporean aquarist can tell me off the list where
I can get that.)
My plants were then having symptoms which seemed to me was K deficiency.
Then I have no choice and bought Flourish Potassium. I added 1/4 of the
bottle to the tank (Ouch! That was expensive!) and the plants recovered.
Now I am adding Seachem Equilibrium to maintain the K concentration during
water changes, but it is also pushing my GH a little too high (13dGH).
I was using Flourish Excel too. I kept to the high side of the recommended
dosage: 1ml per 40L daily. It killed all my shrimps. I have then reduced
it to 0.75ml per 40L every other day.
Hope my experience helps.
