The coral didn’t grow that quickly it just doesn’t exist and was all purchased
Hi, yes many corals and other animals are purchased of came as a present. It just should show the tank after a year, nobody said it all grew in that year.
I’m going to preface this with there is no perfect fertilizer. It’s not possible to cover all needs for aquatic plants kept in an aquarium with a single bottle of fertilizer.
Aquatic plants need all nutrients in adequate amounts to be able to grow well; the common “complete fertilizers" that aquarists know only cover partial nutrients. Formerly it was assumed plenty of nitrate and phosphate were available in fish tanks.
This might have been possible but present stocking protocols are way lower than years ago and often these nutrients are hardly or simply not available. Plus, the essential nutrient CO2 often isn’t considered but healthy and fast growth can only be guaranteed if also this nutrient is provided.
Three different fertilizers are needed for healthy plant growth.
