I have a 500 gallon fish tank and my media beds are full of plants. All of my goldfish died except 2! (I think from ick). So I treated my tank and the remaining 2! fish are doing good. I am going to add tilapia fingerlings (100). My Ammonia, Nitrates and Nitrites are down to 0. I need advice on how to keep my plants healthy until the new fish get settled and start eating and producing.
Sylvia, last time I added a couple quarts of maxicrop to my system, my nitrate levels went right off the charts.You haven't had this problem? Took me 4 or 5 water changes to even see my nitrates come up on a api test.....
Maxicrop is a great way to keep you plants happy until the fish arrive. Although, I really like this soluble kelp from kelp4less. It has a higher potassium rating and because it's a dry product, you get a lot more concentrate for your money than you do with maxicrop.
