I have a few angles in one of my tanks. I just started using cichlid essential on the tank, and within a week I noticed extreme plant growth. Anyone else notice this?

Kent Cichlid Essential Ingredients:
Inorganic mineral salts of aluminum, boron, bromine, calcium, chromium, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, potassium, selenium, sulfur, strontium, tin, and vanadium in a base containing deionized water and EDTA.

Each of the bold ingredients listed above is an essential plant nutrient. It is quite likely that before you added the Cichlid Essential your plants were deficient or limited by one of these nutrients. After adding the product you removed the limitation on growth and allowed the plants to keep growing normally.

This is a sign that you should be adding plant nutrients on a regular basis in order to support proper plant growth. There is nothing special or unique about the product that would make the plants grow a lot otherwise.
