    However holes in leaves means a shortage of portable nutrients which says to me add potassium and then nitrates if needed.
    No argument there.Just vollunteering info I was.

    To rich311k: I started adding extra nitrates to curve algae breaks outs because my plants weren't growing fast enough to use up the nutrients I was putting in the tank. I've been keeping nitrates between 5-10 ppm for the past 2 weeks. All plants but the largest anubias seem to be responding well. I think I'm going to add some crush coral so I have a continuous supply of potassium and calcium.

    To every1 else : All the anubias in the tank are anchored to rocks or drift wood so no problems with the ribosomes. I've also got a slow growing crypt that is having similar problems.
