I think my java fern and anubias might be showing signs of a potassium deficiency. The java fern is turning black in some areas and the anubias has some tiny holes in both old and new growth. I'm not the best photographer but photos attached. It's a 5g tank and I dose one pump of Easy Green once a week. I read that java ferns can suck up nutrients pretty quickly. Should I start adding something like seachem potassium or dose more Easy Green

Do you have one you like best? 

I do, but many view it as "scary", but Seachem has potassium premixed, just expensive. I personally use dry fertilizers, there's an extra step in calculating the dose, but it's dirt cheap.

5 bucks and will probably last you 2 years. But takes a bit more initial calculating.
