Hi all,

apologies if this has already been answered somewhere.

Tropica state not to start using ferts for 2-4 weeks after planting as they come with a ‘lunch pack’. is this really the case?

When am I best to start dosing with EI after planting?

ive had my filter circulating the water in my tank for 8 weeks, so I’m hoping it’s cycled. I’ll probably do 3-4 water changes a week to start with.

Any advise welcome,

cheers,

Wow you have lots of patience... lots if not most folk who keep planted tanks will plant the tank from day one and start the ferts straight away as well.
You can dose your ferts as soon as the tank is planted but dont forget it is not a good idea to add any fish until you have your C02 on song and sorted and that can take some time!
