Adding seachem equilibrium, to tank. Should I add a Kh booster also?
I recently started adding seachem equlilbrium to my tank along with doing 50% water changes. I started this after finding out that my tap water is mixed with RO causing it to lack the needed minerals for healthy plant growth. I Haven't seen any real big improvements in my plants, but they're growing slowly but surely. It seems to my that they're just not growing as fast can they should. I know a planted tank takes time, but It just seems like plants haven't even grown that much since I bought them two weeks ago. Other people buy plants and they're close to twice the size they were weeks ago. The tank isn't new this just have been a very long process full of setbacks. I add flourish comp twice a week, add flourish root tabs, do 50% water changes, and run two T8 6500k bulbs for 8hrs. So What am I doing Wrong? I'm growing very easy to moderate plants in a Higher end of moderate lighting tank.
I measure the growth in my planted tank in month's, as opposed to those who use CO2 injection who measure growth in day's.
Sound's to me like you are doing the right thing's, but perhap's need a little more patience.
I agree. I seldom see this fast a response, depending upon the plant species.
But on the GH, do you know the number for your tap water? You may or may not need Equilibrium. More on this when i know the GH.
As for KH, this will have no effect on plants or fish. You don't mention the pH, but if it is reasonably stable then KH is irrelevant. I have zero KH in my 7 tanks. The biology of the tank, plus the minerals I add via fertilizers and Equilibrium, keep the pH fairly stable and it suits the fish species.
