Arg, they are supposed to be green. Three types of plants in particular -
Hygrophila salicifolia, Nomophila stricta (H. corymbosa?) and a Val -
Spiralis, I think. Old growth is green, but new growth is a bronze color. I
had this problem once before (along with green water) and adding KNO3
cleared it up; I have not stopped adding KNO3 and nitrate levels are
generally between 5-10 ppm.
The tank is about 6 months old; 220W, KH=5, pH=7.0. Canister CO2. I add
about 1.5t of K2SO4 weekly; 10ml each of flourish & flourish iron every 3rd
day or so.
The water also gets cloudy between water changes - milky, not green. And I
have a new kind of algae, a kind of grey-green-blue algae growing on the
driftwood, shaped like antlers.
Othe plants in the tank, with the exception of the compacta swords, are
doing well - red plants are red, green plants are green.
