Help! First time with a 9 gallon Planted tank
I really need some help with my new tank. I got it about 2 months ago and did the cycling, put some fish in there, but now it seems like my plants are dying.
I've done some reading and I know you are going to want some specs.
I got the Odyssea B9 tank which is 9 gallons and the lightbulb underneath is 25 watts. As a sidenote, only one of the florescent tubes lights up...does this mean the bulb is defective or is that just the way they work?
I haven't been the best about keeping a regular lighting schedule, but i just got a timer and have it set for 8 hours a day. Will that help my problem?
The people from the fish store told me to add this excel flourish and iron & magnesium supplement daily, so I do about 10 drops. Plus, I tossed a couple of tubes with fertilizer in the sand at the bottom.
I included some pics but let me know if you need more info or can help me out!
