    I moved a while back and am finally getting back into a dosing routing with the new tanks I've got set up. You can find pics of my tanks & fish @columbus_aquascaping on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/columbus_aquascaping/). Lately I've been fighting some algae issues and likely nutrient...

    Any ideas as to why my pogostemon helferi is lacking? Edges seem while, maybe some yellowing. Just seems to be withering away, no new growth in like 2-3 months. All my other plants seem to be fine (MC, AR mini, S repens, eriocaulon sieboldianum) Fluval spec V Finnex planted plus paintball...

    Despite scouring the internet, I have not been able to figure out what I am doing wrong (which is probably a lot). Since moving my tank from my kitchen to my office, nothing makes the plants happy. It seems like I have tried everything: a more powerful light / a less powerful light, 3x weekly...

    Hello everyone! I am new to The Planted Tank and I did not see any specific place to post asking for help on figuring out a planted tank so please excuse me if this is in the wrong place. I've had my tank up an running over for a little over a year now and I have pretty much been struggling...

    Does anyone know what nutrient this plant is missing? Its is currently anchored onto a piece of driftwood in an high-light high-tech nano that I dose twice a week with flourish. All of the other plants in the tank are growing like crazy but this one (they are all planted in Flourite with...

    Hi there! I have an Amazon Sword Plant in a 10 G, which I moved from a 5 a few months ago. It was doing very well and flourishing in the 5, but in the 10 it hasn't been looking so great (I've also been having more algae problems, I'm not sure of the specific type of algae - it's green and...

    Hey everybody. For some background, I have a 45 gallon freshwater tank that has been running for 5 months. The tank is 24" tall with about 2" of substrate. I have a Finnex Ray2 LED lighting system, use Flourish Excel every other day and Flourish once a week. I also put root tabs in spaced 6...

    I happened to shine a flash light into my tank at midnight last night (this morning) and this Hygro brown was healthy and hole-free. Seven hours later and my morning inspection surprised me with this. What caused this? Is it nutrient related (it developed fast!) or was someone snacking on it...

    I started a low-light EI dosing regime (K2SO4, KNO3, KH2PO4, CSM+B) on my 40b planted tank a week ago. I'm hoping this will stop the yellowing die-off on my dwarf sag and some pin-holes (potassium deficiency, I've read) on my ludwigia from when I first planted 4 weeks ago. All of my plants...

    Hi all! I have a few problems with my lace java fern, needle java fern and water sprite. The LJF and NJF have holes in them and i was wondering could it be some sort of nutrient deficiency or what. Whereas the water sprite is browning along the leaf edge. I dose seachem iron daily, potassium...

    I've been playing around with my fertilizers for the fun of it to see what nutrient deficiencies really look like on a plant. My plan was to dose everything but one nutrient (in excess) and to provide plenty co2. We see lots of drawings, but rarely pictures. Thought someone other than me...
