I am currently running a 75 gallon all glass aquarium.
Filtration = Fluval 306 canister w Biomedia and floss.
Lighting = CatalinaAquatics 3 Bulb T5HO Two 6500k bulbs and
One 10,000k buld for midday influx. Lights are on 8 Hrs
a day. Daylight influx starting at 2:00PM to 5:00.
Co2 = 5lb Bottle with Milwaukee Sms 122 PH controller set for 6.8 PH.
Powerhead powered diffuser.
Substrate = 2 to 3 inches in some spots of Flourite red and Eco complete.
Fertilization = EI dosing with GLA Micros and Macros. Also daily dosing
Excel. 2ml of iron a week. Seachem root tabs as well.
Water = RO/DI From My own unit. Using Equalibrium to remineralize and adjust GH. 50% Change a week. (Just started using this water)
Plants = Altelenthera, Stargrass, Glosso, Riccia, Hairgrass, red Myrio, Rotala Idica, and moss.
Fish = Chinese algae eaters, corys, neons, and serpea tetras.
So My probs began when I just bought a house in the outer city limits, and now am on county water, not to mention the stress of moving the tank that was established for over a year and flourishing. I also went down to three bulbs instead of four T5HO. I just recently started using RO/DI Water from my own filter which is awesome btw. I also switched from seachem liquid ferts to GLA dry ferts. With all this BEING SAID...
Nothing seem to be growing at all and are melting pretty fast... What AM I DOING WRONG?!?
The Glosso And riccia are the only thing showing growth... Please Help!!
