Re: [APD] PMDD recipe -- help please!
Try www.gregwatson.com for all the items needed. BTW, you won't need the
Epsom salts if your gH is over about 3°. Putting those pebbles into your
substrate could be about as effective in nuking your tank as using
Dynamite. And there is no guarantee that they will take 6 months to
dissolve. They could all dissolve in a couple of days.
