    One day, it will be, you just gotta iron out all the creases mate. Read all you want on everything, but the tiniest thing in your environment can make all the difference. You gotta know how to work with your specific situation. Another learning curve

Once this has been feed to the plants after a hour measure ec and take note of reading two days after check ec again and take note of reading and then come back tell us whatís happening. No other nutes other than base nutes. Also whatís temps of res at highest and lowest 😃🇬🇧

    So whatís the purpose of using tap water instead of the RO and calmag? Would wilt guard be classed as a nutrient? The res stays
    Pretty consistent havenít seen it lower than 20.5 apart from filling it at 18 and hasnít been higher than 22.

Iíll know more if he follows my advice and comes back with the readings of ec 🇬🇧

    I was just using wilt guard and regenaroot but used a dash of rhizo on the res before last just to bring the ph back up as I put a bit too much ph down in. So not using rhizo and i was led to believe using wilt guard and regenaroot in conjunction with eachother helps stop root rot and slime etc? Also isnít orca just a beneficial bacteria so no issue putting that in?

    I got so many different bits of advice I didnít know what to do.

    So I ran plain tap water through it for a day. Then on Tuesday evening I redone my reservoir with RO water that had sat there for 24 hours. Added cal mag to 0.4, left out the orca and regenaroot then used half dose of wiltguard which brought EC to 0.6 then added my nutes to 0.8 phíd to 5.6, this morning ph has risen to 5.8 and EC has stayed the same.

    Plants look a bit greener, roots have grown and problems up top seem to have subsided or at least have slowed down dramatically and I canít really notice any new problems. I still am getting this slime though, there is some brown stuff floating around my tank.

    Also I transplanted into a new system so everything was completely clean. Res temps have been a bit lower in this tank too, between 18-20

    Headbanger. So itís either they have some infection thatís causing the brown stuff or itís as you say and itís the organic stuff (wiltguard)

    So Iím gonna do another res change this evening. Without the wiltguard as per BGís advice. See if that changes things.

    Should I water the plants with some h202? Try and clean the root zone of any infections or anything?

    You really need to decide on whoís advice and path you want to follow. Iíd say wash the roots with just plain tap water and if at all possible take them to the shower and blast them off with some clean fresh water once the slime and dead roots have been washed away. Either follow my advice from the other day or someone elseís but stick to one path 😃🇬🇧

    Agreed. The roots are all nice and white, I havenít had a chance to give them a spray down in the shower yet but will do that tomorrow or Monday. There is still a brown film at the top of the roots which sit in the ďfrothĒ caused by the bubbles but that might disappear once Iíve given them a wash. The growth uptop and rootgrowth is steady and accelerating, no problems showing themselves and nice a green. Ph as it should be and the EC hasnít budged. Do I want a slow decrease on the EC or is it staying stable showing that Iím bang on?
