I have added (NH4)3SO4 (ammonium sulphate, almost 30%N by weight) to
my tank in VERY small quantities with splendid results (plants MUCH
greener, growth appears strengthened). Tank is pretty full of plants
so the growth is not very fast. I used 5 crystals (about .25-.3???
gm) in 200L (50 gal). It is unbelievably cheap (just like me, a 20#
sack costs maybe $3). One warning: one time I did not predissolve
the crystals and the next day I took a dead farlowella off the
surface. Darn! Dave
