So I imagine there are plants that are better in a UGF situation? So if I am already dosing my water column in my situation should I not use root tabs? I haven't been up to this point. In your honest opinion should I take the UGF out if I want to have a very healthy planted tank?

Can you only dose the water column or do you need to do that as well as root tabs?

With the GSA if my nitrates are between 15-20 should my phosphates be 1.5 to 2 to get rid of it?

I will wait out the diatoms or get some oto's.

My swords especially look deficient of potassium. Here are some pictures. It's hard to see the GSA and I just wiped off a bit of the diatoms but you can see the plants are not looking lush and dark green. Should I up the amount of potassium?
