    With your soil, it'll be hard for your plants to be deficient. Now get co2 and o2 good levels. I do see a bit of algae in the tank no? Your pantanal seems to need the most. With co2 its hard to get deficiencies I've noticed.

    Jeff, what about Co2? Was that stable as before? Also, have you measured your nutrients levels before the WC? Just curious....

    Fab my man I don't measure nothing,:eek: just look at the Drop Checker and PH meter.


    CO 2 is the same as before I might need to bump it up a little.


    Will keep informed.


    Thanks

    Jeff,


    Are you talking about the dark round spots that are pain to clean off the glass? If so it is GSA try raising your phosphates. CO2 may still be an issue so check that as well.

    I didn't see it I was trying to figure it out based on your description. Phosphates are the KH2PO4.
