quick update... everything growing in well. ordered some dry salts. not sure what i'm going to do with dosing yet. any ideas?atleast algae is under control at the moment.
i'm showing deficiency because of an experiment I was doing. when the tank was rescaped i got a massive nutrient spike due to surfacing a few root tabs. nitrates around 100ppm.you're showing quite a few deficiency symptoms in the older leaves, so at least with EI you can rule out nutrients

i wanted to see how long the tank could go without ferts. before that i was having good growth with 12ppm N, 0.9ppm P, and 8ppm K. I'm curious about EI and fast growth, but not sure i can commit, haha.
The exact reason for an impending break down and rescape with new soil for my 40cm cube, I'll never use those again.JBL Kugeln ball surfaces and its emergency water change time!
it is a very light hungry sp.. nitrate limitation does not seem to do much from what i've heard.
this plant is prone to self shading, and doesn't like being planted too close to each other, perhaps spacing them apart would help?I also have the problem of lower leaves not doing so well - in this forum, many have said that yellowing lower leaves are caused by lack of CO2 at substrate level, even though I do see some CO2 mist going to the substrate level.
