    Hey guys.

    I have stumbled upon this problem and hope you guys can figure out what it is.
    Basically all my plant leaves have a black outlining on them. it seems to be the older leaves.
    I don't know if it is a nutrient problem, algae problem or even a light or CO2 problem.
    Any advice guys?

    Yes you're right. On my other plants it's turning either BBA or staghorn. I cannot tell what it is.
