Re: [APD] stem rot

My suggestion is either carefully calibrate your test kits before  
trusting them, or don't use test kits to decide what or how much to  
dose.  Your symptoms sound like you have too little nitrate, and you  
do need CO2 or at least Excel if you are going to be dosing  
fertilizers.  How much light do you have on that tank?
