Hey guys, I've had this adelae for a couple months, but it's basically doubled in size in a month and I thought I'd share. The only difference I've made is applying some diluted MaxSea I got from the seed bank a month or so ago, so I can confidently say it works wonders!

Please tell me your secrets! I've been spraying mine with maxsea every month and it rewards me with average growth. :?

I have had really good luck with "Tetra BettaMin" pellets crushed made into a paste.

Interesting, I'm going have to try using fish food one day.

Right now mine is in my room with a cheap grow light and a bit of sunlight through the window. For now I've just been using a thin syringe with a blunt tip and applying the diluted maxsea to most of the leaves every week or so. I might end up overfertilizing it eventually, but so far it seems to love it. The only other thing I can think is maybe it finally acclimated and is hitting its stride.

Hope this helps you out!

That's funny considering that most growers talk about how D. Adelae is supposedly sensitive to fertilizers.
I usually only fertilize once a month, I'm going to try fertilizing more frequently.
Thanks for the advice!
