I'd like to reiterate that I've yet to see an EI-dosed tank that has very good plant growth that hasn't hidden all the growth issues through careful pruning, including Tom Barr's. Even his plants suffer from tox but he insists that kind of growth is normal and that these plants need careful pruning to remove all the ugly bits. I've pointed the tox symptoms out to him but he keeps denying it; claims dying old leaves with lack of color, covered with GDA is from lack of light. Lack of light in his thanks? So if it appears that there are some ppl who dose EI levels of traces, it's just an illusion because anyone can show photos that appear healthy that hide all the issues.
See and I know your understand but this why these threads are always met with such resistance.
