The sword is doing better since I've added root tabs, but still has spots on the leaves. The crypt looks brown and daily I pick out vals that are floating in the tank. I want my plants to be healthy and green so I know C02 and lights will have to improve. I'm just not sure what next. I was thinking C02 first, but then got confused with a new clerk at the LFS. In a private message someone suggested lights minus C02 will cause an algae problem.
