Re: [APD] Macronutrients
if you want targets, then aim for about 20-10-1 potassium
- nitrate - orthophosphate, that will work pretty well. I
find my tanks don't do as well if I go much below those
values. In fact it's less troublesome to go higher than to
The potassium value is a really rough ballpark -- if you
have plenty, that's enough but not too much. IF you dose a
lot of potassium nitrate and potassium phosphate, you will
probably have enough but you might add a pinch or potassium
sulfate on top of the the other two.
