If the tank is nutrient poor, does plants still pearl?
The reason I am asking is trying to see if pearling = plants thriving?
I am still waiting for my LFS to get the nitrate and PO4 test kit for me. That also means I have no idea if my tank if nutrient poor or have I over dosed my tank.
Suppose the tank is lacking NO3 and PO4, and probably K as well, but the tank got plenty of light, CO2, and there are no surface agitation. Would the plants still pearl (Would the tank reach O2 saturation)?
