Kekon, I tip my hat to you as well with your testing. I have been dealing with the same A. reinickii on/off stunting we are all so aware of. Having virtually no Mg in my water, I have been adding it to the tank. For a while, it seemed to make things better, now it seems to be reverting to the way it used to be. I have also tried boron to no avail. I will try some TMG instead of Flourish to see if the different chelator makes any difference in the availability of the micros to the plants.

Keep us updated on any relevant observations you make. Thanks. :thumbsup:

In my particular case, I can't imagine it's Ca deficiency. I have well water from a limestone aquifer gh12, mostly Ca. In one tank, the reinickii is directly in front of the spray bar, so it gets the brunt of the circulation. My gut feeling tells me it's a combination of factors at play here, not just a single one, which causes the issues we see with reinickii.
