Thanks. Whats your GH? For Ca/Mg deficiency you could dose any GH booster (e.g. Seachem Equilibrium).

I doubt this is the issue. What about light/co2? The pictures look quite dark.

Dark since the night LED lights where on, Didn't want to reset the pain in the butt timer just for this lol. Anyway ill have to get a GH/KH test kit, don't have one unfortunately. Used to- but now... Lighting is high, Co2 I don't need. For a pic of the tank just check out my journal. I dose ferts (excel, potassium, phosphate, etc)

Ok, checked the journal.

First thing to consider is the overall ratio light/excel. I am not saying it is off, but something you should be aware.

Glutaraldehyde alone cannot keep with high light. I am not telling you the threshold, this will be up to you. But if you push a lot of light, the rest might fall short, and each plant will show it in its own way.

What about the ferts, whats your dose? Something around 4ppm NO3, 1ppm PO4, 4ppm K, 0.05ppm Fe plus traces?
Root tabs might help, but not necessarily needed.

Another thing is circulation. Making sure you take the nutrients to the plants.

If you add the ferts, plus 1 degree GH, you covered everything. Check your water report and see if you have any Ca/Mg in there.
