    Sorry if this is not in the right section.

    Over the last month my Anubis / single sword started to go down hill. I wasn't dosing any ferts due to low light plants and had ready they didn't really need anything.

    From researching it seems it might be a manganese / magnesium, and maybe potassium due to the veins being darker. I stated dosing flourish after weekly 30% water changes. I'm thinking about dosing trace also.

    Tank is 10G running a finnex 24/7, (not on 24/7 mode)

    Any insight is appreciated.

    I have the same problem with a anubias but all the rest are fine. What I did to fix this was dose some seachem trace elements. When I was in horticulture I learned that it is either potassium or like u said magnesium deficiency. I would cut the leafs that have the deficiency and then let them grow back. They are only wasting energy just trying to get the leaf green again.
