Then I had GSA which i've tried to remove the most infected leaves and scrubbed the few spots on the glass as well as upping my phosphate dosing a little. Also.. I seem to get no pearling whatsoever, I can't say I've really witnessed much pearling at all from most of the plants during the week, except after a WC and then they go nuts.
If there ever was a poster for poor CO2, this is the case.
Give up the nutrient obsession, that is not it at all.
Why would the plants pearl well after a WC?
But not other times?
What is in well water where there's limestone?
Lots and lots of CO2.............
GSA and good PO4?
No pearling(except after WC), CO2..........
A reineckii not doing so well, : CO2............
Expecting the Dc to tell you the Correct reading: CO2..........clearly at 230ppm according to the test method, all the fish would be dead, yet they are not and the tank still does not pearling(yet curiously does after a WC............)
not enough nutrients? other then my Alternatera Reinecki "roseafolia" which seems to show a possible sign of no3 excess, no other plants show deficiency's that i can tell.. so why the algae thats killing my plants, why the lack of pearling of any kind
Seems fairly straight forward to me.
If the gas tank is used for CO2, simply add more, make sure there's decent current and enough surface movement and slowly adjust the CO2 up.
Do not rush that, you should see about 1/2 the pearling you see after a water change. I'd suggest you buy some DTPA Fe and add that to the CMS+B as well.
