I think thats a deficiency... Can't remember which one Possibly calcium or magnesium? (I'm pretty bad in this area so deffinatly don't trust me much at all...)

I would look into common deficiencies

My h. polysperma is getting crinkly and my L. aromatica too... I'm not too sure about the deficiency list... it's a case by case basis.. I add calcium but I think there are other issues.

ps.. look into Boron deficiency too.. It says it's similar to calcium deficiency...
I just put in a capfull of trace.

Today I cheked the NO3 and PO4 levels and it was a bit out of normal .
NO3 : 1-2 mg/L
PO4 : 4-5 mg/L

I think I have to change my dosing routine. Those curling leaves probably are related with high PO4 levels.
If anybody can advice something useful please let me know, I'm very curious what could be the reason of my problem.

Best wishes, Aquamaniac

I have some fuzz algae, as usual, but nothing weird. I use no chemicals to fix nitrates.
Tomorrow I will make another water change to dilluate phospates and I will post some photos about algae.
