I"ve noticed lately that all of my rotala and some of myrophyllum is showing signs of dieing growth nodes.

ANy reason for this occuring? everything else seems to be coming along swimmingly. But I am getting some curling of leaves as well.

Help! I'm a bit lost on this one.

If they are whitish and brittle= CO2.
Even low nutrients tended not to make Myriophyllum do that.

If they are being dosed KNO3, K2SO4, Traces, GH etc, then you can ruloe that out.

I have a lot of fast growing plants in the tank, that I know are aboslute nitrate sponges, should I think about getting rid of them in favour of slower growing plants?

Would it be fair to assume that the faster growing plants are utilising what CO2 there is quicker than the other plants?

Yes, that's a fair reasonable notion, you could try phasing the fast ones for the slower ones.

Or fix the issue with good CO2 and routine regular dosing/water changes.

I have a dosing routine and do regular waterchanges, but it's been a long time since I saw pearling, in fact (i've been away for 3 weeks with firends looking after the tank) and the co2's gone wobbly, and I'm getting bba appearing, so I think more co2 could be a good start
