Feeding plants in a Discus Tank
I have a 65 gallon tank that I have aquascaped specifically for a pair of
adult discus I recently bought. They are breeders. The tank has CF light, CO2
injection via controller and cannister injection. Fluorite substrate.
The tank has swords and lotus only. I want to keep the water very soft, maybe
2 degrees GH/KH. I want a little buffer so I don't crash th pH. My water
comes out of the tap with
<1 degree GH/KH.
I have decent experience with discus and planted tanks separately but not
together. I have always had discus in bare bottom tanks.
I want to stop using water column fertilization in this tank. The plants I
have are heavy root feeders, and I want to know if I can meet their needs by
only substrate fertilization, such as Root Tabs or some other product? Any
recomendations r/t root type fertilizers would be appreciated. Thnks for your
