Thanks! It's starting to fill in, but I think I'll need stronger lighting if I want the glosso & the reiniki to do better. But, the algae is just starting, so I'm not sure that is the right direction to go.

I recently tried adding a drop each of Green Brightly Step 1 and Brightly K with poor results. The glosso and stems yellowed and drooped, and the reinkii browned a bit. It's just now recovering, so clearly a drop was too much.

Maybe DoAqua's Be Clear is worth a try for the algae, but I still need to research what ferts would be best.
