Plants melting (PMDD dose)
I am very new to planted tank. I have just started Fluval Ebi Shrimp 8g planted tank with 2 stock lights almost 2 months ago. I also have DIY CO2 up and runnning. The plants just added a week ago. I am dosing PMDD as per the stated instruction adding 4 drops daily. Don't get me wrong on the title as the plants aren't melting because of PMDD dosing. Only some of the plants are melting before I dose PMDD. I am not sure if it is because of the transition of the plant in the new water or I didn't dose enough fertilizer. I heard PMDD is lack of PO4. I also heard the plants melting may because of the lack of Fe. Some of my friends told me to add more fertilizer. Do I need to buy extra fertilizer like Flourish and Iron? I have no clue what is going on.
Would any of you pointing me a direction to build a good planted tank, please? This is my first planted tank.
Thanks in advance.
