- - Liquid Ferts? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/beginner-planted-aquarium/liquid-ferts-24640/)
Which liquid ferts are you using? What do you suggest? Ups? Downs?
I know i need a comprehensive fert.
I have heard good about API Leaf Zone and Seachem flourish. WHich is better?
Thanks a ton!
never used leafzone but i use flourish and its really good. I would definitely recommend it.
thanks for the help. So far that seems to be the general consensus. Anybody else have experiences?
I noticed the flourish is a odd brown color with an odd smell. Will that make the water look/smell odd?
i cant tell in mine, i got driftwood so my waters tea colored. I dont think it will though since the dosage is pretty small.
What size tanks do you use it in?
Just wanted to verify it didnt alter the water. I will be picking some up tonight.
Is it okay to use with shrimp?
i got a 46 gallon tank. as for shrimp iono, probably ok.
I use Flourish fertilizer and Flourish Excel for carbon on my 6 gallon Eclipse. My java fern is doing good with excellent color and my crypt is growing like a weed. With the amount of fertilizer you add and the regularity of it I've never had an issue with water color or smell.
What is this Flourish Excel? I will go google it here in a minute, but should i get some? Right now I am keeping pretty basic plants. Just trying to figure out what the added bonus of excel is to determine if and when i should get it.
Flourish is a fertilizer, Flourish Excel is a carbon supplement. The tank I use them in is only 6 gallons and also at my office. A full on CO2 injection system would be both overkill and an unsightly mess in my office. Excel supplies the plants with the carbon they need but in a liquid form that's easy to dose.
