    Could somebody have a look at the bleaching on the prayer plant leaf please? I suspect there is a deficiency as we are have very soft water (KH and GH) I do know there is non soluble iron in the supply as we were getting brown stained water at times until I put a 10, 5 and 1um filter in the supply. I add Easylife Profito as recommended and the tank below is well stocked with fish, Nitrates at 20-30ppm. Not shown very well but the ‘lucky bamboo’ is also showing some gentle yellowing, however the Pothos is growing like a weed as it probably is.
    Any suggestions gratefully received.
    Regards,
    AtM

    Is that a prayer plant? I thought the leaves looked very different. If it's an old leaf and your GH is low, Mg deficiency would be the prime suspect. You also mention you believe you have enough nitrogen.

    You can add Magnesium from Epsom Salt, MgSO4*7H2O. 3-5mg/L Mg are enough. Use the rotalabutterfly.com calculator to figure out how much to add to get in that range.
