Time for a few updates. Was recently following along on a thread dealing with MGSO4 dosing/deficiencies which got me thinking (dangerous?). So I ended up asking @Seattle_Aquarist
a few questions and of course that lead to some great answers and then more questions LOL. In the end I learned I am very likely running low on Magnesium and likely a few other items as well. Gave my first dose of Equilibrium last nite and subsequently learned just how cloudy I could make my tank water :-(
But, I have a feeling things will be improving even more in the near future. During this process I also learned where the manual camera settings are on my LG-G6 phone! This has proven to be VERY handy in getting pictures to LOOK like they do in person.
As a good example, this is pretty close to what I see in person with regards to my dwarf rotala - it is actually changing color to something other than typical green!!!
This picture is one that Roy spent some time commenting on. I am guess some experienced eyeballs can see some of the issues that have been eluding me for many months. Hey, at least I am learning what to look for - feel like I finally graduated Deficiencies 101
Kinda another pic of the same grouping of plants but I think it shows some of the color progression using the stronger lighting. With any luck the additional Phosphate will help minimize the GSA on the older leaves.
Got my fingers crossed that in a couple weeks I will have some impressive new growth :-)
