Glad this thread helped you figure it out and thank you for posting the nice series of pictures as the plants heal. Your tank looks great.

It is surprising how different formulations of iron and other micros can make such a big difference. EDTA iron is a much stronger & more stable chelator than amino acids and remains available to plants for a longer period of time.

Thanks for the guide Zapins. Both this and your site have helped countless hobbyists.

Were you able to do a further study on phosphates? I'd be interested to see more on that. Like you said, so many of the common charts and symptoms are derived from terrestrials.

Thanks burr.

I have the phosphate deficiency experiment all calculated out and saved on my laptop ready to go. But I haven't set it up and done it yet. This past year was extremely busy for me, probably the most busy year I'll ever have. This year is much better though. But I really should start it soon and record all the results.

I'm actually a lot more interested in recording the symptoms of CO2 deficiency. Using a CO2 scrubber chemical to remove all CO2 from a tank.

At some point I'll muster up the time & effort to get them both started along with the other main nutrients.

Hello,

It was a good guide. Have you worked with nutrients interactions? In my experience the nutrient deficiencies not as easy as it seems. For example, if you see an iron deficiency, you cannot be sure the iron is at low concentration. I made iron deficiency with adding extra phospate to the aquarium( they are antagonism pairs)

Here is an Italian website with pictures and more information on nutrient deficiency symptoms in aquatic plants:
