Re: Boosting Nutrients...
Yes, I've done that before. I used to do it mostly the week or so before a
picture shoot but I decided to start doing it all the time. Since then I've
noticed significant algae reduction and insane plant growth in my 90g.
I can't attribute those results entirely to a large dosing before a WC as
I've upped the doses across the board, but have also made a proportional
increase in my last dose of the week. My plants responded best with a
disproportional increase in PO4. I'm using a Fleet Enema and add 1/8 tsp
~.68ml the first two doses and 1/4tsp ~1.25mL on the last. KNO3 gets
boosted from 1/2tsp to 3/4tsp as well.
On weeks where I may have gotten off schedule I added a usual dose 1/2tsp
KNO3, 1/8tsp PO4 and maybe 1/2tsp K2SO4 the day before a WC, even if I had
dosed the day before.
While my tanks aren't pretty the growth results can be seen at the local
club's website: www.aquacharlotte.com in the Gallery section.
