Thanks for chiming in guys. The reason that the pump was so hard to remove was for one the suction cups were stuck to the bottom of the tank. The other reason is that there is a small cut out at the...

I mean... maybe there are too many plants? I guess that is my first thought - is there a way to know if maybe you should be dosing for a higher tank size than you actually have because its so dense?

Is my EI dosing not doing enough?

So I was thinking the whole point of EI dosing is that you are essentially over dosing your water column with ferts so that they can never run out of nutrients. But I feel like I'm seeing symptoms...

Planted 60 Gallon Cube -Planted TB Low Tech Style

I also dose k2so4. My plants get pinholes in them and drop lots of leaves without it. But that didn't seem to be as big of a problem until the tank was established and the plants became much larger.
