This will be my official journal for my 3 gallon. I had started a post several months ago now asking questions about starting it and seeing as I've been changing things.
It's a little more overstocked than I would want, but I figure I'll be able to keep up with the small amount extra.
I'm having some issues with algea in my java moss. Could this just be because it's the closest to the light? Also, I was thinking of placing a 13watt 6500k CFL over the tank instead, but logic tells me this is more light and would therefore just grow more... Would ferts help at all with this?
The java moss is growing slowly, but also growing algea. There's also a lot of brown underneath. Should I pick out the bad stuff and just replant/add some new moss?
I'm planning on carpeting the riccia soon. I'd like to get some of the algea under control though.
Any thoughts/comments/suggestions are welcome!
