My first planted tank (added pic)

Grew HC emersed for 6 weeks. Put water in 2 weeks ago along with the rest of the plants. Currently running 3bps. Tank seems to have cycled rather quickly. Did frist water changed today and started EI dosing. Plants pearled like crazy after water change. why would this happen when they were not pearling as much prior to the water change.

Major pearling is quite common immediately after a water change due to the high concentration of dissolved gases in water straight from the tap.

Great job for your first planted tank, by the way!

Awesome job. Emersed growth really worked for you, it seems. I remember reading the posts about the issues you were having with it.
