    yeah for those plants they probably aren't very nutrient demanding since they are low light plants. And the anubis grows super slow so that just add to the not needing as much nutrients.

    You could be adding the stuff and the plants may not need it....

    i guess you could stop using it and see if anything happens. Those plants should be able to get by with the nutrients just from water changes i would imagine.

    It'll also depend on what kind of lighting you're giving them ultimately. Without light they can't use the nutrients...

    What kind of lighting do you have?

    Honestly, as Punisher said, you probably don't need it. If you've got a lot of light on your tank (say over 15w of fluorescent) you may need to add ferts ... but even then.

    We dose ferts in our 5g, but we've got 26w of light on there and some fast growing plants. Our Hygrophila is just shooting up and now that it's established, the Pennywort seems to be doing well too.

    My 2cents spends the same as the rest with this post.The type plants you list really do not show alot of growth except over time.The ferts your adding Im sure are doing more then nothing but it wont be super obvious with lowlight plants.Cut your dosing in half,I'm sure its helping,just not alot.
