Thanks sam, on another note, what is the best way to post pics in bulk here? Is it better to just upload using the uploader device on the forum, or upload to photobucket and then page url? Or maybe Icloud and then paste?

ThNKS GUYS!

I have used tap (which is about tds 140) for majority of its existance, but with all my dosing and some rock leaching, my tds is almost 320 (gh 10, kh 7) I think this led to the melting of my Tonina sp belems? I started adding some RO to it now (aiming for TDS 200), lets see if it turns it around. This is literally the only plant that I have ever had die on me (excluding crypt melts) thats is not associated with light,co2 or nutrients) Any suggestions?

Here is a update of the new plants . I'm getting a bit of issues with new growth with the macaranda mini butterfly , and rotala ap mini type two . Both have shrivelled new growth. I'm thinking it's a iron issue, hard water issue, or lack of calcium since I have been doing 1/3 ro water. I have been putting extra iron without too much change, Next will be going back to full tap water , if that doesn't work then full ro with gh booster . The plant does well in my akadama spoil , so I was thinking it was a iron issue. Ummm


Monte Carlo doing very well


Steurogen especially purple is def a slow grower but doing well


Best hc growth without algae I have had in a while, probably due to ro water and me controlling frets better .



Alt mini doing better and taking off


Crazy growth of Mexicana aragouaia , it looks like aromatica
