One thing I forgot to mention on dosing is CO2. Carbon is very important to plants - at least ten times more than nitrogen. Most aquatic plants in nature and aquariums are carbon-limited. So CO2 is often the missing link for good plant growth.

On the flip side, too much CO2 has been implicated in dinoflagellate blooms. I think it was a factor in mine.

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
