Dark green spots on Anubias and buce

Unread postby koipondguy2 » Fri Jul 18, 2014 8:57 am

All my Anubias and bucaphalendra seem to be slowly getting covered with hideous dark green spots. Can anybody tell me what it means and if I can get rid of them?ImageImageImage

It is the sign of deficiency of Phosphorus. Increase the dosage of PO4. You can also introduce some algae eating snail such as Ramshorn/Nerite snails. Changing the position of Anubias in dark places in aquarium will also help.

direct or too much light should be avoided

I am facing the same problem in spite of PO4 dosing....it's because my Anubias were under direct light ....now i have planted plenty of H.difformis to provide shade.
