Do you think that may be one of the reasons I'm having issues cycling the tank? It converts nitrite fine but not ammonia.Angel watch your Magnesium carefully, do you have the API master test kit? You need to watch phosphate, this will tell you if Magnesium is getting low.
A good sign is if the leaves start to look transparent, at that point they are in trouble, best way is 70% water change then 3 days later add Magnesium Nitrate, aim for 25ppm nitrate using Magnesium Nitrate.
CO2 strips all micro nutrients out quickly.
I have the kits but I'm to lazy to go find them and use them on top of that...Do you have Gh and Kh test kits Angel? I have a CO2 chart based on the readings, its pretty accurate and gives you the optimum Ph to aim for depending on the Gh and Kh reading. I will dig it out
