    EI ? PMDD ? All in One ? TPN+ ?

    Ive been using James' All in one dosed daily via peristaltic pump for over a year and a half with great results. It took a bit of tweaking during initial set up to get the daily dose right, and I've had to increase it slightly as plants have flourished. I bought all the powders from one of the...

    Eheim Automatic Liquidoser; anyone used it?

    I thoought about using these a while back. They cost 50 to 60 quid, even if you can find any for sale! In the end I went down the peristaltic pump route. See this entry for full info http://ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=10198. I have 2 installed on my tank and both have been running...

    Root tablets

    I have a few cherry and amano shirimps in the tank. As I understand it osmocote derives its nitrogen content from amonium nitrate. Is the amonia cause for concern or are the levels low enough to not be an issue or will the EcoComplete safely lock up any nasties?

    Root tablets

    Well, that told me. Suppose your right. It's just that I have Eco complete as a substrate and I'm all to aware that it is a very low source of nutrients. One advantage to when you work offshore you have a lot of time at home to come up with hair brained ideas! Some are obviously better than...

    Root tablets

    Hmm, had an idea. :geek: How about using something like these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/100-Empty-Gelatine-gelatin-capsules-self-fill-size-00-/290467716746?pt=UK_Health_Beauty_Natural_AlternativeTherapies&hash=item43a1399e8a and just filling with a dry fert mix? (Such as James' All In One, without...

    Root tablets

    Anyone know of a good source of cheap but worthwhile root tabs? I'm even up for a diy route if anyone knows of any good recipes. I have seen the one where you mix it with clay but am not keen on adding clay to my tank. I did see these on e-bay...

    Flummoxed - James' All In One dosing help

    Greetings folks, I could do with a little help. I currently use EasyLife Pro-Fito as my main fertilizer. (Mainly because I managed to lay my hands on a couple of liters of it few a very cheap price.) Due to my work and just for shear convenience this is dosed automatically at 6ml per day (see...

    Is this guy bonkers?!

    Incidently he hasn't posted anything since October last year, perhaps he tried it and wound up dead, or at least unable to type! Tesco

    Is this guy bonkers?!

    True. Tasting Excel or any source of liquid carbon (Gluteraldehyde and all of its associated isomers) is just sheer lunacy. Maybe he drumk to much hence his maple syrup idea! Tesco

    Can I "add" to an all in one fertilizer?

    Thanks for taking the time to reply! I already have my liquid carbon source delivered via a dosing pump (10 ml per day in 260l tank). I may increase the dosage slightly but am wary of overdosing, mainly due to the possible detriment to my shrimp and vallis. I am considering mixing my own carbon...

    Can I "add" to an all in one fertilizer?

    Excellent, thanks Clive. :clap: I should have pointed out that I am using a 70 / 30 split of RO to tap water. The water where I live is pretty poxy and its so hard Mike Tyson considered using it as a sparing partner. I have to de-scale the kettle weekly. Sinks, taps and shower heads have to be...

    Can I "add" to an all in one fertilizer?

    On my Osaka tank (see journal entry http://ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=10198) I currently dose 10ml of AE Aqua carbon and 4ml of EasyLife Profito daily. I have been reading up on the whole DIY dry ferts thing and think that may be the way to go in the future (specifically James C's DIY...

    How do you sort out EI when you go on holidays?

    Have a quick read of the journal I posted last night. http://ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=10198 I'm often away for months and have been keeping fish successfully for nearly a decade. I recently set up a planted tank and it's mostly automated to alleviate such worries. I belive however...
