    starting to see a new plant deformity: plant leaves are 'hooking left'. its weird, some sword leaves and vals are actually growing against the grain of the leaf, if you will; as are the new leaves of the hydrophilia which in general look terrible

    i hope i am describing this pattern correctly. the leaves are not curling or twisting, but actually turning 'left', the tips i should say are turning, just the ends. it definitely looks odd, seeing the end of leaf growing perpindicular to the axis of the leaf, and it is only occurring in a super small percentage of the total tank, but maybe a clue to an imbalance/nutr deficiency.

    has anybody seen this before?

    thx darren

    I think I have a picture of this turning leaf-syndrome on a L. glandulosa. Will browse through 4 gig of pictures when I get home from work to see if I can find it 8)

    not great, but i have begun to condition my water with Seachem equilibrium (to raise gh to ~4dGH, and saw a favorable response with more plant vigor, but still curved growth. since the stuff is expensive, i will only use equilibrium infrequently, and try and use MgSO4 and CaCl in correct dosages to acheive a 4dGH keeping in mind a 4:1 ratio of Ca:Mg.

    i aslo have noticed pronounced vein color in all plant species. is this attributable to a nutrient deficiency or imbalance?

    thx darren
