The Rotala being a stemmed instead of a rooted plant hurts my only thought on this. When the plants took off so well at
first, but then slowed to such a creeping pace, the first thought I had was that they took off fine because of the high
lights in the new environment but then ran out of nutrients for lack of root tabs in there. But since they aren't rooted that
makes no sense. I went to a better fert, minus the Tetra Pride, so what except the light change does that leave ?
I've heard of Nitrate hogs/Phosphate hogs but are there any iron hogs ? Leaf Zone has it and the Pride together I thought
to be too much of it, but that does also seem to be a possibility.
