    I have very soft tap water where I live.
    I was kinda thinking about dosing Ca and Mg but did not actually dose any.

    And this is what happened to my 29 gallon 1601554946439.jpg
    Crappy pic but I see some new leaves that are pale with veins and old leaves with dark spots.

    Mg? Or could be Iron?
    I did have NPK and CO2 in excess
    I intentionally overdosed macros because I was going to be away for a day or two.
    Drop checker is yellow at 4dKH solution and placed in (I think) the worst circulation point. No hardscapes or dense plants yet. 4bps for 8 hrs.
    In fact pearling was amazing..
    I did go bit too lean on iron (about 0.05ppm I think) and other micros.

    Did you ever get this figured out?

    I couldn't tell by your pic, but if your Gh is below 4, maybe below 6 dGh especially with co2 injection, that is definitely the problem.
