[APD] Using Sulphate of Potash in my tank
I've came across a container of powdered 'Sulphate of Potash' which is said
to be K2O, Potassium Oxide. Nutrients: NPK 0 - 0 - 48
Is it possible to add this to my planted Aquarium?
Will this kill my tetra fish or shrimps do you think?
MSDS safety sheet says it contains: Sulphate of Potash
Origin & Composition:
Total Potassium Oxide (K2O) 48% of which 39.8%K is soluble in water
So I presume it's really K2SO4 or Potassium Sulphate?
I've got a 15L tank where the plant leaves of my Lilaeopsis brasiliensis are
starting to curl and yellow and I think it may be due to lack of Potassium?
Going by Chucks web page:
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis Plant:
I use CO2 and add trace nutrients weekly and a touch of nitrate plus the
plants get a fertiliser tab every 3 months...
The substrate is just gravel and waste otherwise.
(Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just a root beginner!)
