well said Penn... plus the correction needed or the effort needed to correct the defficiency...

UNC-CH, with the strawberry, we do not alter anything.. and the strawberries just bear fruits the way it is... however, for different kind of lettuce, the minerals could easily depleted, thus we need to dose the tank with some minerals to allow them grow properly... no effect with the fish at all... all sorts of lettuce we have (mizuno, grand rapid, butter, and frenzy)
