Anubias leaves with pinholes and algae

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure why, but my anubias are getting terrible pinholes and algae. I have two and both look about the same. I thought maybe I had a nutrient deficiency, but if anything I need a water change because my nitrates are at about 80ppm. Phosphates are pictured as well, but I'm not too sure how to dial those in. Too low is bad and too high is also bad...

I also dose Potassium, as I have read that can be a common deficiency. 

Light schedule pictured as well.

Thanks to all!

Thank you 🙂

I was thinking the same about the lights to help ease the algae. But omg phosphates are so confusing... If I take it down to zero that would be bad right? Isn't phosphorus a nutrient the plants need? I was on here a few months back talking about all my green spot algae, and I was told to boost phosphates.

So confusing...
