I see they have discontinued flora base. I liked it because it seemed to absorb things out of the water column such as medications and minerals which seemed to keep the water very clear. It also...

What lights do you have and how long are they on for per day?

Are they raised up off the tank or sitting on the tank?

Are you using soil?

Hmm yes I think I divided by 200L instead of 50 gal. Seems like the normal amount then so the issue is probably not related to the excel. One less thing to worry about.

Very strange.

I doubt the aquasoil is depleted. That happens after a year or more and you'd have potassium deficiency (holes on old leaves) before you saw other deficiencies. Potassium is very soluble in water and...
