Yeah it is Kno3 and KH2po4. Cool, I'll watch my levels and see how I go :)
Thanks again for your help!

Can I just use the ei dosing without c02?
Yes you can, but if you aren't using co2 you will just need the chelated trace elements mix (micros) and you can dose less of it because plants grow slower without co2.
 
Thanks very much, I will be going to a c02 system but it won't be till the end of the year
 
Just dose about 1/3 what you would full EI if you don't use CO2
 
Agreed and 1/2 the amount (Micros and macros) if using carbon
 
right, so I can dose both macro & micro as long as I dose by 1/3?
 
ive ordered the ei kit & I`m not adding anything else to the tank at present
 
Yes but with a 50% weekly water change
 
Cheers slim, on another note at present I have a air bubble curtain at the back of my tank, running 24/7, can I still run this when injecting co2?

Cheers
 
Running a airstone or air curtain will only cause Co2 to be driven out of the water, therefore you will have to constantly inject more Co2 in order to reach the optimum Co2 level. (wasting Co2 and your money)
 
I would reccomend removing the air curtain, or only running it whilst the lights are off.
 
Thanks very much, looks nice on the eye but not going to waste co2/cash

Spot on:)
 
Hi there. I bought this system today so what differences in setup are there as it's not a fire extinguisher...I have never set one of these up before and I am a little nervous lol thanks in advance

 
Other than the drop checker you should have everything you need there. It's basically a complete set up although I believe that the diffuser is doubling as the bubble counter.
 
My experience of water life products was that their regs tended to only have the main on/off control which was a pain for turning them off at night if you wanted to save CO2, as you had to readjust the levels in the morning for turning them back on. Can't see from the picture what yours has.
 
Thanks Dr Rob, is it just a case of putting the parts together and it's done? I am a little nervous of doing this and in a safe manner
