My "Sunset Hygro" is showing on the lower to mid leafs some black type
spots that gradually get holes and then start to gradually deteriorate..

Is this a Nutrient Deficiency of some sort??

I believe I have seen somewhere that mentions this..

What and how much are you dosing, into how big of a tank, with what kind of lighting, and water parameters.

It could be many things and we need a little more to go on.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

Hey Sc here we go again.

Lighting seems to be OK. But you might want to tell us what light colours you are using. Do you have a mix or is it just one type please advise.

Paul you cover the lights, I'll bug him about the ferts.

markstr, you dose NPK and traces? What are you dosing, how are you dosing it, how often are you dosing?
