Hello,

Yesterday I set up a new 250l planted tank with ADA substrate. My question is should I start dosing EI now or wait for the "ADA spike" to finish?

Do not start from first day.
Start just with potassium.
Ada amazonia releases a lot of nitrogen.
Wait with micronutrients until plants will need.

don't forget change some water during first 2 3 weeks

Can you give some more details about lights Co2 filtration amount of plants for start?

I've also ordered the ei starter kit, looking forward to giving it a go.

I use the sera test kit, it includes all the tests that you need like gh, kh, po4 etc and very impressed with it.
