Yes I understand. I think problem is that my light was on medium setting for like over a week. I thought it malfunctioned but it was a setting. I re did it to full high intensity. Now I see difference in that patch.

You can blast that patch with all the light in the world, but if not enough is reaching the lower leavers they will eventually fall off, and roots will shoot out searching for substrate. Some like this look, others don't.

Do be honest the best thing to do is replant them like cal said. If the leafs are already yellow then they wonít go back to green as they are already dead/dying. Just trim all the tops off and replant the tops

Thanks a lot guys but as I said I was noticing a change in leaves color. So I waited. Now all plants are back to how they were after like ten days of dosing Flourish comprehensive once a week, Seachem Potassium every other day and Seachem Iron twice a week along with Seachem Flourish Excel daily as co2 substitute.

I trimmed today and noticed all leaves deep inside dense places and all leaves looking very nice dark green. Actually it was my mistake to stopped fertz because of Taiwan Bees. Now after resuming fertz they are back to normal.

Please share your thoughts. Thanks.

I am also surprised. It could just be a band-aide fix for the time being, but as long as its working keep doing it. Just make sure you aren't over dosing a fert that isn't helping. I think eventually the plant mass will get too big and you will have to cut it back, but for now it looks good!

Yes I also thought that. I am very new and what I read is that potassium is very important in all macro fertz. Also the soil I have is ADA and as you told me they lack potassium so I think dosing that helps. Thanks a lot for the support.

Yes I wasn't expecting too. Now looking more greener than I posted picture above. So all seems good. Thanks a lot for the support.

I am not overdosing. In fact I was underdosing and that's why this problem arouse. I use Flourish as a base fertilizer once a week only and from now on will use potassium twice and iron once only as flourish contains little iron already. Phosphorus and Nitrogen I will start after like two months. Tank is only like six months old. Thanks a lot for the support.

Well, long before I got back in to the game a guy named Tobi Coring (founder of aquarebel fertilisers) had ADA soils tested at a lab in Germany.

So if these results are correct, I also have confirmation

http://aquascaping.flowgrow.de/aquas...a-soil-analyse

**website may need google translation**

Thatís why ADA use Brighty K.

In the link Tobi recommends K is kept at 3ppm at all times. I calculated your dosing using Rotala butterfly and it would seem you are close to this assuming there is no build up. My thoughts are that if K was culprit then the plants are indeed using lots of K.

I notice when using EI things can turn sour after a while of good growth. It normally takes several 50% water changes using RO water to bring K levels to a readable level on my test kit (requires calibration) I donít know if high K is the reason for poor growth but in terrestrial plants High K can interfere with both calcium and magnesium uptake. Itís amazing just how quickly K can accumulate dosing potassium phosphate and potassium nitrate.

I wouldnít dose N or P unless plants are showing signs of deficiency.
