new to planted tank
Can someone please help.
Have a 40 gallon breeder tank i believe. Have 5 neons, 3 plectcos, 4 cherry shrimp and 2 cory cats. I will be getting more corys and shrimp soon. Have val for live plants and these seem to be flourishing. I have a 24 inch 4 blulb t5 on the tank. Had a horrible case of bread algae happen so dropped lights from 2 to 1 and. It is a old grow lamp with 6500k bulbs. have pressurized co2 stoped nutruiets due to algae growth. But want to start introducing high light plants but whenever i put more light bulbs in i get bad alage outbreak any idea??
also some of my plants have been shedding leaves(they turn a clear color and float not attached anymore any ideas???
