The Loach Forum Archives (4)

For Gareth -- more about fertilizing plants

I printed your post and will look for NPK and Tropica Master Grow as my LFSs. I don't like the fact that the Plant Gro I bought doesn't say anything about how often to use it, but recommends testing.

Two very specific questions:

1. I have not used any fertilizer yet as SusanA didn't think I'd need it with only one live plant (so far). On the other hand, I only have 5 tetras in the tank.

Should I start using it now or wait till I have more plants?

2. Do you test your water for Iron or anything else for the plants? Or just judge fertilizer needs by looking at them?
