Returned from my camping trip to a cloudy tank.
It's been five days since I have reduced the lighting, as well as up the phosphate's and c02.
I trimmed the glosso very close to the substrate today, as it had begun to grow over it's self. I search for information on the subject, but couldn't find much advice here on the forum, however a few youtube videos gave a me a good idea of how i should do it.
I'm hoping it will grow in just as dense with half the lighting... even though my fixture apparently places my tank within the high light range. I'll avoid any GSA and silk/filamentous algae this way hopefully.
The greenwater will hopefully fade away now that I have addressed the issues... I really don't want to buy a UV, or fus with a diatom filter. Tomorrow I will change out ten gallons, it'll look pretty for a few days but I imagine it will get worse again . .
Plants are still growing very well. I need to rid the tank of the riccia soon, which looks like crap and grow vertical . . . wish it was dwarf riccia. =/
drop checker getting greener, it starts off deep blue every morning after the air pump shuts off. It's about as green as my water between taking that picture and now.
Interesting new growth on the left, where the stems are coming from the base, pretty sure thats more of how it's supposed to look.
With a root system like this; I am hoping the glosso makes a nice recovery.
