I did that before this happened, but I will continue to remove dead/dying matter.Philosophos;51538 said:New growth should be a good indicator; perhaps try trimming off above and below the necrotic areas then re-planting the tops.
If I up dosing by, say 4-5 mL, will that cover it and keep my other stuff in a suitable level?Philosophos;51538 said:It is worth noting that if ferts aren't burning a hole in your pocket, and you tend to be a light feeder, 2-3x the PO4 doesn't hurt. I find GSA can pop up with low bioload tanks and that mix.
Dates may be a little off, I'm using pictures to form this timeline. Pictures added to show different substrate levels. To see these pictures together, I like the old look better. The glosso still looks like crap.Philosophos;51538 said:Would you care to write out a basic time line of changes these plants have gone through in their environment?
10 May - Established tank as DSM sans plants. Done this way to establish bacteria/give myself time until the weekend to move plants over from 10 gallon.
15 May - Planted and flooded tank. Dwarf sag, Crypt wendtii x2, H. kompakt x2, L. arcuata bunch x2 that floated in my 10 for about a week. Used filter from 10 gallon so all bacteria presumably transferred. Take a close look at the crypt in the center. See how it's pulling itself up from the substrate? Everything with roots was doing this.
22 May - Up until this point everything seems fine. I grew tired of the low sand and thought I might pull up the worm castings with my constant dabbling in the substrate so I added sand, change the dwarf sag for glosso and added two bunches of M. aquaticum and two of L. arcuata. This was the day I took my aquatic dwarf frogs in and in return grabbed a couple shrimp. The frogs were bulls in a china shop when it came to stems.
23 May - Found 1 shrimp having issues in one specific spot.
24 May - First noticed the downward spiral, posted it in this thread. Just use it for picture reference. That's two days after the above tank picture. Also posted this about my shrimp. Short post, continued and ended in the first linked thread.
28 May - Posted this thread thinking stuff was turning around. Wow nipat, you're right, I should've kept this all together. Sorry about that guys.
31 May - Started this thread.
Today when I got home I spotted GSA on the front glass very low to the substrate and only in two specific spots. The weird thing, though, is it's dark brown and not green.
