Some tank info before questions:
High light [email protected]
now for 6hr
Co2 35ish ppm
Full ei for 20-40gal tank..
Pics will b at bottom of post in same order as im asking about the plants.
#1 is either rotala indica or rotundifolia (ive heard the name has been changed idk)
Curling leaves after lughts out.. grows an inch a day.. pearls like crazy.. not sure if the curling is maybe a ca deficiency or what..
#2 cambomba green. Only been in tank about a week so still converting to tank params. First new shoots look a lot bigger in diameter than old growth.. to me it looks well. No questions really.
#3 myrio red. I bought from lfs. No ferts but fish waste. Low light. No co2. Looked terrible but I figured id give it a shot..
Regretting this one after cleaning the dead needles up for a week now.. its not red. Its barely growing?? Looks terrible. Im thinking maybe iron... ill touch back because next plant I think may b iron related also.
#4 alternanthera reinecki I believe.
I placed some small icecubes under it that I made with trace+npk and thay has helped growth but still slow and gsa is bad on this plant. I trim off infected leaves but more show up. Really my only algae problem right now.
Is the slow growth because the plant is slow growth or maybe an iron deficiency again (red plants, idk).
I tried to throw some stems around it to see if less lught would help but I cant tell yet.. I also have floaters in the mail (red root and amazon frogbit) gonna try to coral them over this plant to see if it likes less light.
Now I dose ei exactly as recommended right now and water params r about perfect.. except I dont have a test kit for f
Iron/fe yet.. so I havent been dosing anymore that what is in csm+b..
I ordered iron chelate 10% from nilocg but am unsure how to dose because I dont want evap issues..
Can I mix it with my csm+b mix and dose that way or should I mix it seperate or just dry dose it??? And how much extra??
Sorry for long post and heres the pics. I only had my white channel at 15% so typically plants r getting a lot more light than pics show..
1st rotala rontundifolia
2nd camomba green
3rd myrio red
4th alternanthera reinecki
Thanks for any help and if u see anything else that could cause issues just let me know. Im open to all suggestions.
