Sorry to bother you but I'm having plant growth issues, with some of my plants are getting holes.
IE fertilizer dosing daily so should be getting enough ferts.?
(EC is Around 170-200 between water changes.
Co2 lime green.
200lr tank putting in 20mls twice daily alternating between days macros/ micro fertilizer.
Lights on for 6.5hours WRGB 80%
Two biomasters 600 filters.)
Any ideas?

Two main causes of holes in plants are-
1. Inmates eating them.
2. Poor CO2 supply/fluctuations

The plants may be nutrient deficient which is making them susceptible to inmates eating them, or inmates not being fed enough food eg algae pellets etc

If CO2 need to do a pH profile

Think I saw this tank in another thread and if like I suspect you dose full ei then its unlikely to be lack of nutrients. Are the plants that are affected in the corners of the tank or in areas where flow could be lacking?
Poor CO2 supply/fluctuations
That would be my guess.

Correct

Correct again, flow is King of the high tech tank - which is often overlooked esp as plants fill in
