Now that you mention it danepatrick, I've been looking at the nitrate and phosphate relationship within planted tanks. If I do have high phosphates from eco (haven't checked yet >.<), I was thinking of adding more nitrates for the plants. A few days after i started the tank, my frogbit showed signs of yellowing leaves. A few days later, my cyperus helferi also showed yellow leaves. During the weekend, I found a few leaves of my samolus covered with cyanobacteria.... ; ;. I'm thinking the combination of high phosphates and the lack of nitrate is causing this. Do you guys have any suggestions?
