I can test for everything except potassium. i'm getting it balanced for sure but my plants aren't growing and now the stems are rotted at the gravel line. I was adding excel daily to help remove algae. I had BGA, knocked it down and now some green on the glass, but not all over. I can't add co2 yet untill I locate a solenoid. I found iron has dropped off to almost zero so I dosed it. Other than that it's holding steady.

Add CO2. It's critical if you have a lot of light. If you need to add 
fertilizers, you need to add CO2 ... the most important nutrient of all.
