    All of my vals that were once flourishing are now starting to breaking off at the base. The vals have been established for quite some time (>six months) and previously were growing vigorously. I haven't changed anything in my daily dosing or water change cycle. Some other plants don't seem to be growing quite as well as the once were either.

    Scott, in my experiences Vals and many other plants become brittle as the CO2 levels decline, or the NO3 is declining.

    I'll assume the N and P are tested accurate(So try adding more CO2, ignore the test kit but watch the fish, turn CO2 off at night).

    I have done enough CaCl2 dosing to say I like CaSO4 more, but it does dissolve slower.

    I'd also add about 3x more traces(Flourish)

    Regards,
