Re: [APD] NO3 limits in planted tanks
Thanks for all of the great information.
>>>or that excess nutrients induces algae(other than NH4/unstable CO2) that
these issues are simply not true.<<<
>>>I'm just sating the upper limit is very high for GH, TE and Macro
nutrients as well as CO2 and light.<<<
I have a small amount of algae in my 120g tank (some black spots on a few
leaves). I've been using your EI for months now and I am sure that the nutrients
haven't been low. Since I still have a little alage in my tank after using
the EI correctly, I guess that would mean that my tank is overstocked causing
to much NH4, is this correct?
Also I thought that you stated in a previous thread that if there was to
much NH4, that daily water changes would prevent algae from forming, is this
Last question - OK since I have a little algae now, would I have more or
less with higher watts per gallon? More light would mean more growth and maybe
use up the excess NH4 causing the algae not to form? or since I already have
the algae would the extra light just cause more?
