    Agreed on adding more cardinals, there's not much that can go wrong and the more the better.

    I currently have 25 cardinals and with my tank at around 100% stock I am not really looking to add any more.

    Good for you on knowing when to stop. It's a gorgeous planted tank very well stocked. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Thank you :) I am looking forward to resolving some of my latest issues. I love learning more and more about the hobby and watching my tank grow into something I can't even believe I created.

    so my potassium problem still exist but I am closing the gap to where things should be good. I will be upping my k2so4 dose to 1tsp 2x a week for a total of 24ppm of potassium (K). In conjunction with the 7ppm of K from kh2po4 that I dose each week I will be at a total of roughly 31ppm of K vs the 20 or so that I am at now. I am hoping this will resolve the issue completely. If not I will continue to up my dose.

    Make note, hygro's are a very demanding plant when it comes to potassium and to under estimate this will result in what I have been going through. Pin holes that grow larger and larger with yellowing around the hole, leaves eventually get so weak they fall off. Old leaves degrade first as new leaves suck up the potassium from older ones.

    This deficiency have an negative effect on growth and overall tank balance/health.

    I also dropped my lighting back down to 8 hours a day. The benefit of running a longer photo-period was not showing to be worth the additional headaches. Growth didn't change that much but what did change was the demand for nutrients. This lead to GSA and what I believe to be BBA beginning to show its ugly face on my plants. I quickly caught wind of what was happening and rather than fight a battle of continuing to dose more and more I simply decided to lower it back down to 8 hours.

    In terms of my scape, I have decided to look at other options for a foreground plant instead of the dwarf sag. I picked up some Crypt Nurri and I really love the look of this plant. Depending on how this go with this plant in my tank I may opt to use it to completely cover the foreground with it. It seems like it stays very low and I love the colors in the leaves.

    I will keep you all posted :)

    Good deal. I too really like the look of C. nurri. I'm working on getting my parva to carpet. I think if I rescape my 20 gallon I'll be adding some nurri to that one.
