   Really? I thought that you used Tropica Mastergrow. I see that it contains some
K, but you find it necessary to supplement the potassium in Mastergrow? You also
add additional N? In what manner do you do this? Do you feed mostly flake food,
frozen food, or live? Is you fish load abnormally low? I ask all of these questions
because of the thread that I had going a while back about whether N should be
included in a commercial fertilizer. Perhaps, if N and K are not supplied in the
wide range fertilizers that are currently being offered, they could be offered as
optional supplements. Or, we could all just keep using Jobe's Sticks. <g>

Why would you run a tank strictly on bottled water?

Bane of your existence? Please, tell us more.
