Adding liquid CO2

Yes. It’s a bit different for each tank!

I’m using the Easycarbo daily and Profito weekly (going to change that to a few times a week to spread it out) in the 500. Going to put root tabs in next water change.

In the 12L I’ll be using all 3 of the above if the plants I ordered ever arrive!!

The 200 has root tabs and Profito once a week.

The 26L has Easycarbo and Profito

I think rofl

I'm so out of touch when it comes to plants these days what are root tabs?  Cool

They’re little sticks or capsules that you put under the substrate to get fertiliser straight to the roots.

There are quite a few different sorts you can get. I went for the EasyLife branded ones this time as last time we got cheaper ones from eBay that were capsules and all they did was leave little yellow and blue balls in the substrate that I’m not sure did anything!!

All the major fertiliser manufacturers make their own version of them.
