Hi All,

It seems that my monte carlo is yellowing a bit, older leaves have holes and GSA. I've tested my PO4 and I'm at 0!

Should I add some ADA Brighty special lights?

Thanks

Thank you, I'm only dosing brighty K daily at the moment.

I will use ada step 2 at month 3 but I didn't use step 1 for an better algae control.

I've ordered ada special lights as it contains po4/k/azote, any other suggestion? Thanks

Great looking scape...you've created an interesting look with the way you've used the substrate.
