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.

Try upping the iron and see...

The location of the damage (new leaves) is consistent with iron deficiency, but the severity of the damage (totally dead new leaves) and the speed at which it happened is not. This is not typical of...

Very strange.

Looks like an iron deficiency but the leaves usually don't die and melt that quickly.
Is there any chance you can post some better photos? The images are blurry and make it...

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...

Can you take more photos? Perhaps the brightness of the photo is altering the ways the colors look so it is difficult to see where the yellowing is. Some close up photos would help.

Generally only 1 deficiency can affect an individual plant. So it would be iron deficiency for all plants in the tank.

Curling leaves aren't usually a great indicator of anything in particular....

Yes basically 100% an iron deficiency. Correct location, color, and very low iron dosing levels.

Dose 0.2 to 0.3 ppm iron three times a week for a total of 0.6 to 0.9 ppm and you will solve this...

Haha yeah, by "break" I mean not paying that much attention to the tank that is set up and running or posting on the forums. Not having a tank at all is unthinkable!

This is an iron deficiency because the new leaves are white. Iron cannot be moved around inside plants, so when it runs out the new leaves have none and grow out white.
