Tiny green plant (mold? fungus? air algae? alien herb? ) growing near the middle melting plant:



One of the bulbs sent up a flower (I think- it doesn't really look like a lotus flower):

As always, any help or suggestions for this tank would be appreciated. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong here. I really want to know what is causing my plants to melt. And plant IDs would help a lot.

how much light do you have? did you stop dosing so much fert? maybe try just misting them with treated tap water once or twice a day

Sorry about the lack of updates. This tank got really out of whack and I had to create a separate thread to get some help about them, so I started updating that thread instead of this journal.

My light is a Hagen GLO T5HO 2 x 54w light; equal to over 4 WPG. I've been told that one 2 x 54w T5HO would be enough to give this tank medium light, so definitely in the "high to super-high" range.

I did stop dosing the extra ferts. Then, I removed the substrate and switched to pure soil. The plants look even worse than they did before. I'm going to be extremely busy this week, but I'll try to get some new pictures of the tank.
