I hope your tank is recovering nicely. I know how frustrating it must be. Some of my plants also melted quickly (but my tank was nowhere near as nice as yours though).

The R. Macrandra and Myrio melted too fast for me to get a photo. The Myrio is ok now though. Here's a photo of the Blyxa.

Sorry I never got the chance to post new photos. But the growth reverted to being deformed. I just got a Phosphate test and it says 5. Seems rather high. My nitrate test also says about 15 I think....

I just saw the same thing in my tank. Thanks for asking. Now I know what it is. It really does look kind of creepy. Mine's on the front glass.

I think you should wait to add the inverts. They tend to be more sensitive.

Yeah the lower leaves are still looking odd so it's not resolved yet for sure. But I just trimmed the bottom of the stems and replanted today so that may be why the plants look a little bent. I think...

Thanks. I've been dosing potassium too but I'll try increasing the dose a little. Oh and the pin hole is on a crypt. I'm not sure what to do about calcium though.

Do you also think CO2 is a must have to achieve the colors? I've been reluctant and only use Excel.

I'm sure I won't get those colors no matter what I do though. I only have LEDs and they just...

After I started dosing Nitrogen and Phosphorous, the algae issue wasn't so bad anymore. The plants are also growing much better. I think even the red is starting to show. Thanks for asking!

I would go with the Planted+ since you have other lights. The Ray2 would be too strong. I have the Ray2 with no CO2 and algae can be a bit of an issue. So far I have no algae problems with the...

I'm so sad to hear about your tank. It was one of my favorites. I'm sure you'll do an amazing job with your new lay out too.

I'm also copying your LED strip light idea. The Ray 2 is too white.

Thanks for the input.

I'm not dosing Phosphorous because I read somewhere that I didn't need to. On second thought, they meant if you still need to change water. Since I no longer need to change...
