    Following advice from here, regarding my Algae, i have invested in a CO2 system from Lunapet. I am just waiting for the right size connectors for the reactor to arrive from Germany. :D

    Anyway. I would be most grateful if you could take a look at the following 3 photos and ID what is wrong with the plants. I am assuming it is a nutrient deficiency of some kind?

    I currently am making up a solution of 12g K2SO4 and 2.5g Trace in 500ml water and dosing 100ml 3 times a week. The tank is an AquaOne 1800B, 620 Litres (210 watts Lighting total).

    I am not too worried about the Algae, i am hoping if i get the dosing right and with the CO2, it will clear itself up. I am more worried about the health of the plants.

    Any suggestions/advice gratefully received!

    Thank You

    There is a 99.999% probability that these are symptoms of poor CO2.

    Cheers, as soon as the connectors arrive and i get the CO2 up and running, that should solve it then!

    Thank You!
