hey guys, ive been searching this forum for the answer to if liquid ferts stress out shrimps, i cant really understand if it is at times when i read some of the old posts. but ive been dosing liquid NO3 into my shrimp tank. maybe thats what is stressing them out. is dry fert better then liquid?? i bought some powdered KNO3 and etc. and if it is ill use that instead of the liquid fert

thanks
everyone

I have heard more stories of adverse effects resulting from dosing with dry ferts as opposed to liquid ones. I dose with liquids and have not had too many problems.

so dry fert is even worse then liquid, so mixing the dry to liquid form will be fine, as for dosing, i guess...dose less, but more frequent is the key then
