It's just how your specific variant is, nothing you can do about it. What root tabs are you using? Something with some sulfur in it 'should' help it go a little greener.

Vals like a lot of Ca too.

If I'm not mistaken, theres a red jungle val. Might be what you have. I was checking them out for my tank awhile back and seen red ones.

Pressurized CO2? Vals will melt when using Excel / API CO2 (both of which are NOT CO2 )


Also, API tabs contain virtually nothing.... see picture

Edit:

I noticed you are in Canada, I make custom root tabs, I can send you a bunch for free if you pay postage. PM me if you are interested.


My Custom Tabs:::

Root tabs: 4% Nitrogen 13.6% Phosphorous 26.2% Potassium 10.3% Sulfur 0.1% Boron 0.3% Zinc 3.4% Magnesium **non-guaranteed analysis, roughly these values.
Place 1 tab near large rooted plants once per 1-2 months.
** Derived from: • Monoammonium Phosphate + Ammonium Sulfate + Proprietary Zinc Compounds • Potassium Magnesium Sulfate • Potassium Chloride + Calcium Hexaborate Pentahydrate + Sodium Tetraborate Anhydrous **
