The Flourish alone will provide your micro elements. I wouldn't get the Trace, it's basically water.I have a 10 gallon with just a strip light and a 6500k bulb. It's been set up for a month and for the most part everythings been going well. But my Anubias Minima isnt doing too well. The leaves are starting to turn yellow around the edges and the tips are turning black. I figured it was a deficincy of some sort so I picked up some Flourish and Excel. I'm hoping to find some Seachem Trace tomarrow.
How often should I dose and how much?
You can save tons on ferts by buying a powdered trace element powder and mixing your own solution. Hydroponic stores sell trace element mix powders. You simply take about a tablespoon of powder and mix it into 250 ml distilled water. Shake well before dosing and dose about 4 ml per 10 gallon tank. IME, the only difference you may see is the price. When I dosed Fluorish Comprehensive and the home made powdered mix, there was no difference in performance.Good to know these ferts arent cheap.
Yeah the rhizomes tied to some drift wood. I have a anubias nana thats fine from what I understand the minima isnt too different care wise.Are you sure you're not covering the rhizome. Don't have any experience with A. Minima, but I've had an A. nana survive 8 wpg in a 13g for months without any fertz.
Are your other plants doing ok?
You know I thought about that but I figured it's only a stip light. I think you might be right becuase the nana isnt directly under the light and it's doing better then the Minima which is. I'm gonna have to figure out how to decrease it maybe duck weed.I read that the anubias do better in shaded areas. Why not give it a try for a while?
Off the bat it looks like sunburn to me. For the tip looks burned. Potasium deficiency has holes more in the middle of the leaves.
