 If  I  use  Aquasoil  Amazonia  II  and  if  it  is  a  High  light,  fast  grower  tank  with  Glosso,  HM  etc  etc,  then  which  ADA  Fert  should  I  dose  at  what  time  frame?  I  will  not  use  Power  Sand  under  AS.
 
 I  am  confused  when  to  start  dosing  Step  Ferts  and  when  to  dose  Brity  K  and  when  I  should  start  moving  out  of  the  Step  Ferts  and  dose  other  ADA  Fertilizer  Line?

 Tirtha
 
 Brighty  K:  To  be  dosed  as  recommended  for  the  lifetime  of  the  tank.
 
 Brighty  Step  1:  0  -  3  Months
 Brighty  Step  2:  3  -  12  Months
 Brighty  Step  3:  12  Months  Onwards
 
 Start  Dosing  Brighty  K  and  Step  1  a  week  after  setting  up  the  tank.
 
 Alternately  you  could  try  DO  AQUA  be  green  as  this  contains  Potassium,  Micro  and  Macro.  Iron  is  the  only  thing  that  is  missing  in  this,  so  that  has  to  be  supplimented  by  using  Step  2  or  ECA  from  the  3rd  month  onwards.  This  is  what  i  am  doing  for  the  3  footer  which  i  redid  recently.  So  far  looks  good.
 
 One  thing  that  i  have  observed  is  that  we  do  not  plant  as  densely  as  Amano  does  in  his  tanks,  so  i  started  dosing  only  half  the  dosage  that  was  recommended  initially  and  then  stepped  it  up  gradually  towards  the  recommended  doasage  as  the  plants  grew  in.  Hope  this  helps.

 Hi  Seetharam...
 
 i  am  planning  for  the  "doaqua  be  green"  for  my  hairgrass  tank.  do  i  need  to  dose  daily  as  the  grass  is  still  quite  sparse  and  the  tank  is  not  heavily  planted.
 
 also,  for  iron  supplements  shall  i  go  for  the  "aquatic  remedies"  iron  fert.  i  cannot  go  for  the  ADA  iron  supplements  as  it  is  kind  of  costly  for  me.

 Tirtha  ,  I  generally  start  dosing  Brighty  K  and  Step  1  from  day  1  of  setup.  The  ADA  line  of  ferts  is  on  the  lean  side  and  as  you  will  be  doing  regular  water  changes  in  the  beginning  a  little  extra  ferts  would  not  hurt  while  providing  nutrients.  Also  don’t  forget  the  ADA  ECA  and  Green  Gain.  Both  of  these  are  essential  IMO.The  ADA  line  of  ferts  work  as  a  system.  Or  if  the  ECA  is  expensive  in  the  long  run,  I  would  recommend  going  with  Seachem  Flourish  Iron  but  you  will  have  to  tune  the  dosing  as  needed.

 @  Tirtha  -  Glad  to  be  of  help,  agree  with  Bhushan,  Iron  is  quite  an  essential  suppliment  which  i  noticed  becomes  scarce  in  a  ADA  tank  around  3  months  after  setup,  ADA  recommends  Step  2  as  it  has  Iron  suppliment,  also  i  guess  you  can  start  dosing  from  Day  1  as  Bhushan  recommended,  now  that  i  think  of  it,  be  green  does  not  have  any  nitrogen  or  phosphates  that  can  be  used  by  algae  to  take  over.
 
 But  the  cardinal  rule  with  ADA  setup,  regular  water  changes  for  the  first  2  weeks,  When  i  set  up  my  tank  i  did  50%  water  changes  once  in  2-3  days  and  also  used  activated  carbon  for  the  first  2  weeks.  If  you  can  use  some  used  bio  media  its  a  bonus.  I  did  not  even  realize  when  the  diatom  algae  and  fuzz  algae  which  comes  in  new  setups  came  and  went  ....  barely  noticable   Very Happy  
 
 @  Muddassar  -  I  would  suggest  go  with  1/3  rd  of  the  recommended  dosage,  see  how  the  plants  react,  adjust  the  dosing  accordingly.  Increase  its  as  the  plants  start  to  flourish.  You  could  try  the  Iron  fert  when  your  nearing  the  3  month  mark,  again  as  Bhushan  has  mentioned  any  product  apart  from  ADA  has  to  be  tuned.  Start  with  small  doses  and  then  tune  based  on  how  the  plants  react   Smile
