I'm still puzzling with my dosing. I think I need to up the frequency. I haven't committed to a regular schedule yet, which probably doesn't help. The seagrasses were going like gangbusters, but now some are turning yellow, looking less than happy. The macros look a little better, but not great either. I'll do an ulva export this weekend. I may prune the large red as well.

Seeking the balance! Getting the right nutrient levels to match the rates the plants can use them is a challenge. I'm hopeful I'll figure it out. I've got the big 3 covered: Carbon, Nitrogen and Phosphorus. Plus a few trace elements: Magnesium, Iron and Calcium. I've just got to find the frequency.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
