no PO4 i tap water
Believe it or not, there is no phosphate in my tap water - at least
that's what the water company says. I haven't tested myself yet, maybe
tomorrow. My question is, should I be using NaHPO4 to lower my pH (8.3
down to 7.0) instead of Seachem's Acid Buffer? Or will PO4 from fish
waste be enough.
My tank is a 20 long, with 80 some watts of fluorescent and compact
fluorescent lighting, DIY CO2, and a pretty heavy fish load. I just
added the CFs a couple days ago and plants are bubbling away.
I'm planning on adding some Hygro. and watersprite in a week or so to
fill in some space, so nutrients will have to be on the up-and-up. Have
Seachem Flourish and Flourish Iron in the mail, so hopefully I'll be
