I remember back when the tank had healthy plants i tried a 18w cfl in it because the 14w is worn out and 18w was all i could get. I had to switch back to the 14w because the 18w would make all the tops of the plants bleach white and die. Probably because they where trying to grow faster but couldn't get the food they needed. Also when i had the old plants i had to cut and replant at least once a week, sometimes twice. The liquid ferts i have is Aqua Master plant food N,P,K (2.6,0,5) Chealates of Iron, Copper, Manganese, Boron and zinc. I think i need to up the lighting and start dosing proper ferts. I don't even know where to start :/
