|concepts88||I think you have every thing but missing the most important. Co2|

I am fairly new to this but I have learned that too much light can really throw everything out of balance quickly. Shorten the lighting period in addition to the using fewer tubes per previous commentors.
A diy CO2 yeast reactor running on a tank is better than excel alone with higher lighting I think. Pressurized is absolutely the way to go if you have the money burning a hole in your pocket. I'm happy with my pressurized set up.
You asked about Magnesium sulphate. This is just plain old Epsom salts, available at you local grocery store.

Their site has a fertilzier calculator on it, right above where you bought the fertilizer packages.
As someone suggested, lower it to 2-3 bulbs and shorten the time on it.
You have more lights on a longer cycle than I do on my reef tank. I have 2x39W T5HO on 8 hours/day especially your plant stocking levels isn't that much.

I have the anubius kinda tucked under the wood, it doesn't get as much light though, but since i added the extra two bulbs it has gotten worse so i agree that the light is too damn much! Any advice on the dosing though?

|tetra10||1+ on the "too much light for no co2" also, anubias is a low light plant. try to reposition it so that there is less indirect sunlight. good luck.|

turn down the lighting which i think was suggested last time, try using 2 39 watts and one colormax
and take in mind anything u do takes 2 weeks to show up as far as plant growth is concerned.. U HAVE A LOT OF LIGHT, for no co2

|aquatickid||I found this calculator. However, it calls for magnesium sulphate and i have potassium sulphate. Is that different? And i'm guessing my trace elements would be the plantex CSM+B?|

GLA Green Fert Pkg: Micros & Macros, NOW WHAT?!!
Hi guys, i ordered GLA's green fert package that consist of the following dry ferts.
Plantex CSM+B,K2SO4 potassium sulfate, KH2PO4 mono potassium phosphate, and KNO3 potassium nitrate.
I have 4 giesemann 39w aquaflora and 2 colormax bulbs. I do not have a co2 system but i do dose liquid co2. I hope to have a system some day but not right now, money is tight. Any suggestions would be awsome.
this is what it looked like when it started yellowing
NOW IT HAS BLACK SPOTS AND YELLOWING AND LIGHT BROWN! WTF am i not getting?
