[APD] Re: Nitrogen suppliment (lot of questions)
"Chemical treatment" is *not* a radical method, it is part of the process
used by nearly all successful planted tank keepers.
the yeast bottle. According to pH and dKH graphs I easily bring CO2 to
20-30 ppm. My KH right now is 4dKH. By the way condition of my amazon
swords with few yellowish spots, which are getting bigger indicate, I
believe, luck of nitrogen. As you can guess I am trying to get rid of
green water. I am trying to do it without radical methods, like chemical
treatment, diatom filtration and alike, and do it by changing nutrient
content in the water and substrate.
Probably should have clarified this a bit more than I did originally... I
mean "chemical treatment" as in dosing with chemicals like KNO3, K2SO4,
etc. Not stuff like simazine and other algacides. The use of algacides is
generally not recommended for a planted tank since the algacides will often
cause problems for the "good" plants too.
