 Hi  All,
 
 i  am  noticing  holes  are  developing  on  Staurogyne  sp  and  bolbitis  from  last  5-6  days,  they  are  on  older  leaves,  new  leaves  are  looking  healthy.  another  peculiar  thing  on  staurogyne  sp  leaves  is  that,  some  the  leaves  have  lot  of  dark  green  lines  which  usually  we  see  if  a  plant  leaf  is  crushed  (its  just  that  appearance  however  no  one  has  crushed  the  leaves   Very Happy  )
 
 Which  deficiency  it  could  be?  i  made  a  mix  based  on  chucks  calculator  and  started  dosing  however  i  always  had  spot,  green  dust  algae  etc,  so  decided  to  reduce  the  dosing  and  then  doing  a  trial  and  error  to  reach  an  EI  dosing  regime  which  is  optimum  for  my  tank.
 
 Dosing  details  -  
 Macro  -
 kh2po4
 kno3
 micro  -  
 microsol  B
 
 tank  specs
 4x1.5x1.5  (approx  200litres)
 about  104watt  T5HO  on  for  9  hrs
 substrate  -  mix  of  inert  gravel,  ada  amazonia  mud,  soilrite,  coco  peat.
 flora  -  bolbitis,  staurogyne  sp,  java  fern  &  windelov,  HC  cuba,  dwarf  hair  grass,  blyxa  japonica,  rotala  rotundifolia,  needle  leaf  java  fern,  anubias,  christmas  moss,  hydrocotyle  tripartita.

 Is  it  like  pinholes  on  the  bolbitis?  Do  you  have  any  algae  eaters?
