Anyone Know the Cause of the Brown Spots? [PIC]

These brown spots (see pic) appear on several leaves of my Ruffled Sword, not on new leaves. Maybe I need to put in another Root Tab - last time, 2 or 3 months ago, it threw up a lot of leaves.

I'm not running full fertilization, just Root Tabs, Flourish Comprehensive, some Potassium, and Equilibrium.

Smile Echinodorus spp. Love Iron, Love Fertz


I would definitely boost the fertz.

It may be just normal leaf replacement, if it is a new plant just settling in getting used to being underwater.

But it looks to me as though the plants are a bit peeked. More fertz, definitely more iron.

If your Guru tells you otherwise and you are true believer that is okay I will not argue the point.

I pretty much limit what I say to things that anyone can easily verify from recognized references or by direct observation. If it is my opinion I say so.
