Re: Dying cories
Philippe Lemaire seems to suspect my K dosing.

The directions on the stuff says that a capful is 1 tsp or 5 ml. The
fertilizer says it's "0-0-3". The last number is for K, but I forget what
it means... Further down the label says "Soluble Potash (K2O): 3%".
It's marketed for aquariums, and I'm at about 1/3 of the recommended
weekly dosage so I *assumed* (not always a safe thing to do, I know) that
it was probably OK.

I change a different amount each week, depending on how bad the tank
looks/how tired a feel.
No, I'm NOT intentionally trying to make this harder...

The only thing staining my glass is green spot algae (and some spill
marks on the outside...).
