Byron,

I will add pictures of the new leaf growth later today. The steams of the new leaf growth are very brown and almost transparent as if the plants are dying. There are a few other plants that growth well but they start to fade away. The colors fade and the leafs, stems almost turn transparent. you can see right through them.

I will hold of dosing anything that you have not recommended and will give the system the 2-3 week period that it needs. The CO2 system is still runnning.

This could be the result of the changes. But the photos will tell us more; one of the tank overall, and one (or more) of the leaf issues. When you post them, just so we have everyting in one spot, include the current light (duration and intensity), and all fertilizer supplements being added.

Here are the pictures of what the plants are doing, the browning and transparent look, also some pin sized holes.

doesn't the prime lock up the nutrients from the plants for 48hrs? i don't use any conditioner and never have in a planted tank. others will disagree with me here but a penny saved is a penny saved.

pretty tank btw
