I am using the EI for 40-60 gallon and when i tested after my water change but before dosing (I change the water sunday - 50%, then on mwf i dose nitrates, and tues,thurs,sat i dose everything else) i got a Nitrate reading of about 5 ppm
. Is this normal or low? Seems i wanna keep them between 20-40 ppm
at all times. Just looking for some tips b/c i am still trying to get my planted aquarium to perform like a lot of you guys online. Right now only the super easy plants (wisteria, ambulia) is growing well while the others are growing slowly or dieing slowing. I am using pressurized co2
with EI dosing and 130 watts on a 55 gallon. Let me know what other info you need to provide some tips.
