The reason I ask is because it would be nice to have as a good reference to look at to find what nutrient deficiency my tank has when looking at my plants.
I think most of the common charts and threads often point to things that over lap and are more often than not, misdiagnosed.

A lot of it is actually having gone through it a few times and knowing yourself specific to the plant species and issue. No chart is going to summarize that experience very well over 400+ species, they behave differently. No way around that.

Google search:

The chart suggest CO2 1st and suggest 30 ppm is optimal, it is NOT optimal.
CO2 optima will vary tank to tank for many reasons.
