OK , first off some info on the setup:

Plants . Jungle vals ( doing great)
Anubia( not sure which one) smaller species. Seems to be OK , not growing much but looks healthy
Anubia beteri(sp) doing well
Dwarf sagittaria. Not doing so well...yellowing transparent leaves
Spiralis doing OK
Ciliata. Not doing well yellowing with brown around the edges in spots.
Anubis hastifolia not doing well either... yellowing with the veins still green
Crypt wendti(sp) doing well growing like a weed with good reddish green color and lots of new growth.
Java fern doing OK with a little new growth
And a huge amazon sword .
With a couple more plants which I am not sure of the names yet
Just started ei dosing last Wednesday ( 10 days ago). And most of the plants which are not doing well were just added on Sunday ( 5 days ago) They looked great when I planted them and have gotten worse each day since.
I know I am forgetting something ....just wanted a little input . Is there something else I should be adding?
I will try to get to a computer so I can post some pics a bit later...
Thanks in advance , Scott
