    I will be switching to a Finnex Fugeray on my 29 pretty soon so I want to know how to fertilize it. I was doing EI before but now that won't work. I'll be dosing Excel every other day. I have KNO3, K2SO4, KH2PO4, and CSM+B. How would you go about fertilizing this tank? More info is in my Profile.

    Why can't you do EI?

    Oh, I thought EI was only for high-light tanks.

    Well, it can be, but you can cut it back to compensate for less light. I'd cut the dosing routine in half and see how it goes from there. It's hard to guesstimate how much the plants are going to use so it's just something you'll have to play with. The end of the week water change is like a 'reset' so either way it shouldn't be a huge deal unless you go way overboard on a certain fert of course.

    I'll dose K2SO4, KH2PO4, and CSM+B then. I'll test daily. I'm not going to dose KNO3 as my nitrates are at an adequate level (10 ppm).
