I put a DIY co2 reactor on and increased my ei levels and also added and will add 2x week, api leaf zone (iron/potassium). I also eliminated potassium sulphate and starting dosing potassium nitrate. I'll check my nitrate levels in a few days and see where we are at with that.
Oh and there is no yellowing on the anubias it's actually dark green with a rust colored red infestation on a couple of the leaves. The rest of most of the plants have a pale green at best.
Should I trim off the worst off anubias leaves or could they still be serving a purpose?
Update: hard to say because I changed ferts and co2 at the same time but I think the biggest culprit was co2. Everything is looking healthier. The thing I did notice that started to come back right away was a little bba and I think staghorn algae. Staghorn on the ar mini in two spots and bba on the ecocomplete right under the filter intake. I wonder why they would have all of a sudden shown up. I thought that staghorn was from low co2? Also nitrate are up since I have been dosing them again. They are up to about 50ppm now
