Re: [APD] Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 25, Issue 3

Sandi, I'd not worry about if things look "red enough", that does not win any contest FYI.
Healthy plants win contest. Lower NO3 will likely cause other issues with some plants.

"Hi all, I have a tank that I am planning on entering
in the AGA contest- this will be my first time
entering- and I am currently trying to get my plants
to peak. I am running DIY Co2 (I do not know how much
I am getting but everything is growing fast), dosing
excel and macro nutrients daily w/ traces and iron
every other day and have a 4" bed of flourite. All of
the nutrients are Seachem brand (using the full line
of products) dosed at aproximately double the
recomended doses. Testing shows my Nitrates to run
between 5 and 10 ppm so I think I am Ok there and the
plants are showing no signs of any deficiencies."
