All, please help looking for some advice I recently setup a new tank fluval Roma 240 litres, CO2, Ada substrate, 2xt8 bulbs and 2x54 w t5 bulbs so lots of light...
I was doing a dry start but gave up... My baby tears are now growing but my other plants keep getting problems.
The spirals have almost completely died after being in for 1 week and the Star Grass is growing like crazy but getting little brown specs (holes) on top leaves. I have no fish since this is a new tank 3 week with water and have gone though 1bottle of 600g co2 per week so plenty of co2.
Can anyone help please? I would appreciate any advice.
Also the reason why the Christmas moss died was because it was under high light during dry start. Since putting water in it has started to grow back show sign of life again.
More pictures to follow.
I will add some more on as close ups.

Hello, well I just received some Potasium so dosed that 10ml per 100l and it's a 240 tank.
- easyCarbo 10ml daily (thinking maybe it's this)
-profito plant ferts. 25ml weekly which seems to have brought the Christmas moss back to life. Did a direct dose I.e syringe in water.
- fluval Cycle biological enhancer to cycle the tank.
Any ideas? What about the hydrogen Peroxide think it's 12% I sprayed that in the water to kill some algae.
Are daily water changes of 50% recommended with new substrate?
Ammonia burn is a great possibility.
Not daily. By daily I think I have done 6 90% water changes since setting up the new tank. In 3 weeks but then I read that when cycling a tank not to do any water changes? I thought ammonia is good for plants? However I am a complete newbie so could be way off.
Should I do a water change? I thought the idea was to wait until the Nitrate levels rise then do one? They have just started to rise as of yesterday. See pic.
