    Is this an iron deficiency? As you can see the growth tips on one of my cambomba stems is starting to turn yellow and my banana plant leaf is very pale green it almost looks whitish. One more question concerning the GDA by the banana plant leaf. How far along in its lifecycle does it appear to be?

    *The BBA you see in the picture is dying and being consumed by my Rosy Barbs right now. You should have seen it 3 weeks ago, that vase had no color it was completely covered.

    The algae on the glass looks like green spot algae, which would suggest a phosphate deficiency. If so, that deficiency would leave other ferts less available to the plants.

    Nope its not green spot algae. It is green dust algae that I have aged for at least 12 days already so its starting to thicken up. The algae on the back glass is BBA which has been dying out recently.
