holes is plant leafs


Hello,

I am staring to get holes in the leafs of my plants. Any suggstions as to which nutrient is defficient?

Also my Bacopa croliniana is not doing that great. The leafes are meltihg away, the stem seem to become weaker and weaker. This is a second time I am trying to grow this plant with no luck. Some of my other plants seem to be doing very well, they have reached all the wy to the top of my tank. Any suggestions?

Default Co2?

What type of Co2 system are you using, if any?

What kind of lighting? Have you tested your water for the following, no3, po4, gh?

It could be a number of things. Please let us know the above so that we can help.

My stats for the tank are:
CO2 automatic. Currently between 24ppm to 30ppm
KH 5 to 6 degrees
NO3 10ppm
PO4 approx 1.0ppm
Lights are at 112watts, and I have a 90G tank.

From the website provided earlier it seems that I am missing Potassiums, I have started dosing it 2 days ago. I just hope it will improve the situation.

Seems like you are on the right track - absent potassium is what causes holes in some plants leaves. Happened to me mostly with sword plants.

Regarding your Bacopa... if all your plants grow nicely, and Bacopa doesn't, rather then trying this and that and then some I suggest to rip it out, stomp it, compost it and enjoy the rest of plants.

maybe not enough light or a combination if not enough light and not enough pottasium

it seems you only have a little over 1 wpg, dont think thats enough to grow the lot of plants, unless your growing mosses or ferns
