I been struggling to get the Thrive+ and i finally get it, i have read the analysis.
And i say why not i make it myself?
So i went to the local fertilizer shop, brought some of the chemical that i needed, and it only cost me around <RM200
Any of you tried DIY fertilizer before?
and it can make like 10litter of Thrive+ with less than RM200
and im using this website to help me calculate how much to addhttp://rotalabutterfly.com/nutrient-calculator.php
Anyone have tried this before?
I plan to used it in my 10 gallon small tank with 2-3 guppy and few RCS, and see hows the plant, fish and shrimp react.
If all goes well,no dead fish, plant thriving, maybe i can share the formula.
yes last time i do it, but now i'm getting it from a friend
it is very hard 2 get NPK in it pure form in small quantities, not 2 mention micro nutrients + edta iron
u say local fertilizer shop, is it in pure form (look like table salt)
if it is not thn it might not be safe 4 fish especially shrimps
if u r dosing micro nutrients + iron, make sure it is those shrimps safe type, they r sensitive 2 copper n iron
