[APD] Re: Nutrient Problems
Looking at your pictures, you probably have nitrogen deficiency,
probably K and/or mg. deficiency, and possibly iron deficiency. I
recommend that, before you add any nutrients, you should cut your
light down to about 1/4 of the present level. Only increase the
light when the plants seem fully recovered and the algae is under
control, and then only increase it cautiously. For a 29 gallon, you
have very high light. When algae gets established under low
nutrient conditions in a high light tank, and then you add a lot of
nutrients, the algae can become a nightmare in just a day or two.
Once the algae is under control and the plants are looking better, a
little phosphorus would help, too. I think I would increase the CO2
to get the pH down to 6.5.
