Thanks sam, on another note, what is the best way to post pics in bulk here? Is it better to just upload using the uploader device on the forum, or upload to photobucket and then page url? Or maybe Icloud and then paste?

ThNKS GUYS!

I have used tap (which is about tds 140) for majority of its existance, but with all my dosing and some rock leaching, my tds is almost 320 (gh 10, kh 7) I think this led to the melting of my Tonina sp belems? I started adding some RO to it now (aiming for TDS 200), lets see if it turns it around. This is literally the only plant that I have ever had die on me (excluding crypt melts) thats is not associated with light,co2 or nutrients) Any suggestions?

check your gh and kh as well. I hear tonia (as well as syngonanthus sp.) need soft water. Ammania species I think also have a preference like that.
