Anubias growing fast, but lighter in colour.

They are growing rrally fast, but bit pale.

Is this po4 or no3 or K or mag deficiency? Im confused.

Dosing tropica premium double the dose.

No3 - 25 as per API between 20-30

I don't see a problem, really.

However, Tropica Premium only contains micronutrients, no N, P or K. You should consider adding these macronutrients as your plants will eventually develop a deficiency.

Are the other plants showing deficiencies? Just curious what is KH/GH?

Add phosphate, if it's 0 then it's inhibiting the nutrient uptake of the plants.

Yes got k2hpo4 today, and dosing as per EI-daily on rotala calculator. Tomorrow will be doing a 50% wc as usual weekly, will stop adding equilibrium and excel. Hopefully all works
