They only eat decaying plants? I thought of leaving it be in the tank idk how big they get or if theyll destroy my plants that was my main concern. Definately dont have room for anymore fish im at capacity.
Pond snails stay fairly small... Roughly pinto-bean sized.
Well i seperated the snail in a container and its been pooping like crazy and sure enough its identical to the stuff on the back leaf thats too blurry to see lol i guess the anubias was his home.
If the snail is mostly eating algae, it is going to poop like mad.. not a very nutrient dense food source, so they have to eat a lot of it.
Also ive been dosing an all in one fertilizer liquid with micro macro nutrients and trace elements so not sure if i have any deficiencies. My anubias seems pretty dark green to me minus 1 leaf that just opened up from a bulb which is more of a lime green. Crypts have me a bit worried with the color but theyve actalually been growing more leaves and look fuller. My biggest concern is my dying red lilly
idk what to do about that one its melting away.
An all-in-one fertilizer that's truly complete isn't generally possible in liquid form. At the very least, iron and phosphorus react if present in sufficient concentrations, so you can't have good doses of both.
If you're using Seachem's flourish comprehensive, that's mostly a micronutrient fertilizer. It contains some NPK, but very little compared to what plants consume.
For example flourish comprehensive contains 0.07% Nitrogen, and 0.32% iron.. that's less than 1/4 as much nitrogen as iron.
However, plants consume something on the order of 100 times more Nitrogen than iron... (Plant leaf dry matter is typically a few percent nitrogen, and a few hundredths of a percent iron)
Clearly you can't dose enough nitrogen with flourish comprehensive without massively over-dosing iron.
I'm no expert on lillies, but that looks a lot like nitrogen defficiency, which seems a bit strange given high fish load. I might try to find a fertilizer tablet with a good amount of nitrogen and put it near that plant. (Seachem root tabs are, like the liquid, mostly micronutrient..)
