Mg can also have the same effect sometimes.

I really can live with the pinholes but why not see if something changes.
Ah, got it, should have figured it was something like that. I guess some pinholes isn't the worst thing, unless it opens the plant up to other issues, algae, etc.

A fine vintage. I'm partial to the 2011 JBL TestLab.

After looking back at some old pictures where I felt the tank was doing well I decided to make a few changes. First was to go back to 4 bulbs for 8 hours, there is still a 30 min burst of all 8 which will probably increase to an hour at some point. Let's call it the winter light schedule with double the viewing time. Secondly, the Mg went almost back to previous levels, not quite 2:1 but greater than 2.5:1. Thirdly, both macros and micros got reduced to what they were the last time only 4 bulbs were used. Macros are now 8-3.7-14.6 ppm/week and micros Fe -0.33 ppm/week.
What would you say the PPM values of your CA:MG are?

Currently it is:
Water change water
Ca - 22.5 ppm
Mg - 5.4 ppm

Dosing
Ca- 0.8 ppm/week
Mg - 1.7 ppm/week

Just a photo update, still waiting for the Rugosa (of all plants) to pop it's head up on the back right.




E. Lineare needs thinning I think.

Plants are looking very healthy and the contrast of colors is eye popping!

As usual, very, very well done.

Any changes to or experimenting with anything, or just on autopilot?

Currently experimenting with the macros but that's it. Less po4 and K, powered by MasterLine clone.

Too early for conclusions but I have observed a large reduction in GDA, which was kind of my goal. The GSA reduced as well but I feel like it's on the verge of a comeback on the glass a bit. As for plants, rotala macrandra catipillar and rotala walichii are as big as ever, mermaid weed has maintained it's size too. This is probably due to growing in the top third of the tank now more than anything.


Next is probably to bring the micros back up to 0.4 ppm Fe and observe. I may try to constantly trim the h'ra and catipillar to the hight I want but will need to sacrifice the nice big tops.

It's all fun and games tweaking fertilizers, doesn't have as large of impact as some seem to think.
