Can I add more CSM+B with RO water?
I have been working on getting my fish healthy and dosing per EI, and I seem to still have issues with what looks like a Ca and Mg deficiency? I add 3/4teaspoon of Kent RO Right to my 5gal buckets during my water changes, but some of my stem plants still seem to get curled and stunted? I was wondering if it would be ok to add 1/4teaspoon vs 1/8teaspoon of CSM+B every other day when I dose my traces?
Things seem to be getting much better for me, my fish and plants.
Still have a little bit of algae, but Im tweaking my co2 slowly to get my drop checker greenish yellow. Last night I checked my pH at the end of the photoperiod right after the co2 went off, using API test kit, and it read 6.4? My pH is usually 7.0 without co2 on. Ive read around that a "full point" pH drop is about 30ppm co2? Does that mean I wanna get the pH down to 6.0? Its hard to tell if my DC matches the green 6.4 block on the API pH test kit
Here are some updated pics
Thanks very much
