Ludwigia Repens Deficieny – Now Recovering

Finding the right balance in a tank between the plants, fish, and everything else can be a difficult task. For me, I have recently found that I wasn’t adding nearly enough nutrients to support healthy plant growth. The ludwigia repens seen above is a good example of my tank beginning to bounce back after a nutrient deficiency. The yellowish leaves with holes in them were the original tops of the ludwigia less than a week ago. Since I started dosing with more nitrates (via dry KNO3) and Seachem Flourish, in addition to continued use of Seachem Flourish Excel (for liquid CO2), everything in the tank has begun to grow quickly again with bright green hues.

Victory! At least for now… Hopefully they keep it up!
