It still looks like a Ca deficiency with the hooking leaf tips and clear (gelatinous) leaf areas. I belive that ADA Aquasoil has a relatively high CEC so if it is a newer tank it may have absorbed much of the Ca and Mg in the GH Booster. Don't expect old leaves to change, just watch new leaf development.
Thanks for your responses.
To be honest I added a GH booster from UP, which is mainly for shrimps but I thought it should do the job.
Last time I checked GH (3 days ago), it was at 6 drops so I assumed there was enough ca and mg. Maybe the GH booster Im using is higher in mg than ca? Not sure...but i am also doing csb traces.
I have ordered aquarium GH booster powder so guess I have to wait to see.
Is ca tester worth buying?
