    By the looks of things, you are using a normal soap dispenser? What modifications did you make?

    For the record - new batch of fertz on the weekend - 50g KNO3 + 20g Multifeed classic + 100ml scape liquid carbon - rest all water in 500ml dispenser.

    No issues with algae or anything funny in the tanks with this.

    Does not look like it was the Fe causing the formation, so next batch I will leave the 100ml scape liquid carbon out - not actually convinced it is working in this cocktail.

    So with no liquid carbon in the system, no new crystallisation. I left some as a seeding point.

    After this mix I will flush and try KNO3 and Liquid carbon - see what we get with that.

    Just done a fill. So will need to let this run out first.
