Iron chelate for iron.

KN03 for nitrates.

Have you got C02 on your tank?

Take a look at EI dosing, it's a good starting point for this kind of thing.

Like drops of fertiliser into the tank, so are the days of our CO2...

i just switched to pressurized co2 about two weeks ago which slowed some of the effects i am seeing down. i dose kno3 regularly so i am leaning more towards an iron deficiency

When I was 17 there was a new one in the show room at the Ford dealership. 427 and all the goodies. That thing had drool spots all over it but you couldn't touch it because of the aluminum fenders. The price ~$7000!

Have you seen the 1966 SHELBY COBRA 427 "SUPER SNAKE" ? I saw it a few months back. $5mil
