  1. Default Leaves turning a little clear.

    My amazon sword and my hydrophila seem to have their leaves turning clear.

    It could be from the powerhead i put in with tons of bubbles that did this but i don't think so. It just happened over night but i also fertilized with Seachem flourish and Iron yesterday.


    also tiny holes on my amazon sword leaves have been there for a while now. Don't know if my old loach ate them or if something was causing them to do that.

    I think either afish had a nice salad or iron deficiency.
    CORRECTED video of my fish. This link works. For sure. Really.

    Tanks:
    20g long: 4 panda cories, 1 honey gourami, 1 apistogramma borellii, 1 male cacatuoides
    20g High: 3 bolivian rams, 12 rasboras
    8g hex: empty
    5g: empty

    Thin leaves and holes developing is a iron deficiency. Sometimes the amount of Iron in Flourish is not enough. My water has a very low GH and thus little to no Iron at all. I have to dose with Iron on all my planted tanks.

    That is a definate sign of iron chlorosis.You need a better form of iron fert.I use seachem iron and flourish tabs in the substrate in conjunction with the fluorite I already have.

    I can see where it could be iron deficiency but i have a feeling it isn't.

    Since i had just dosed with iron the night before AND added the powerhead right near it i have a feeling it's more of the extra water/bubbles hitting it. rubbing off some of the leaves.

    PV, having seen Iron chlorosis first hand in my tank, I'd have to say that is what the problem is, it looks just like mine did. The dosing the night before isn't going to work quite that fast. Give it another day or 2 and you should see some improvement.

    It is for sure.It takes a dedicated dosing regimen to keep it from occuring,mostly it takes an iron rich substrate,especially for swords.

    It could also very well be potassium deficiency, dont rule that out. I had clear leaves on my temple plants and pinholes in one of my swords, and i use flourite, which is very iron rich. Potassium dosing solved my problem. Fert tabs, preferably seachem, will help the pin holes in the leaves as well, as they have good sources of iron and potassium.

    3 macronutrients - N, P, K. Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium. All must be dosed liberally to ensure a deficiency is not occuring.

    -10g FW guppies, planted
    -44g Terrarium, tree frog, various plants.

    yes to all above.I never think of recomending the others even though I dose them also.Glad you popped in.

    The only reason I wouldn't suspect the Potassium is because there is no mention of "burn" marks around the holes. That is the big difference I've seen between potassium deficiency and iron deficiency, and I've had both.
