I just wanted to see how everyone's plants are doing. Ive heard a few positive feedbacks in that there is definitely a difference.

Was wondering about everyone else?

The plants do look like they are doing well, nothing outrageous but my new plants arent all melting/dying on me either. What ferts are they again, and how did you make em?

Some personal things to note, -around the same time I started using, Im getting crazy bba growth- even in the tank that had no bba, and then some shrimp/pygmy cory deaths who were all super active before.. could have been a coincidence, but I didnt test my water to really look into it.

My plants are doing well overall since dosing the liquid ferts. I've noticed a boost in coloration and growth on all my stem plants. Thanks Ed!

I actually dose more than what's recommended and have not lost any of my amano shrimps and cories. Fishes also doesn't seem to be bothered by the high CO2.

BBA can be from an imbalance of lighting and co2 or there's not enough circulation in the tank. I had it at one point, added two nano power heads and now it's fine. Only one spot, bottom left front, I get a little growth on the substrate
