Post a picture, and get Seachem Root Tabs to put deep under the plants. Both kinds of plants need Root Tabs, as well as probably NPK and micro fertilizers.

Thanks for the comment, NiloCG. I will have to work on a few things. But I get the feeling that the aquarium has a few bumps while settling down to more ferts being available.

I wonder if building a locked cabinet for the tank (kind of extreme, I know) incorporating other ideas here.

I know that I want to just look over my shoulder and see the actual tank but just a...

I don't think I can help you conclusively with that one. For me it was thread algae. I think just about any of the real nasties might come up, not just the kind that invades the glass, which came...

Hard to say whether one dose of K2SO4 is enough. Since I'm doing 2 doses per week of NPK, maybe I should add another dose of K2SO4.

The NPKs are KNO3 and K2PO4 I think. 3 K. K2SO4 is 2 more.,...

KH is 3, GH is over 5. I use 1/2 tsp. Seachem Equilibrium per 5 gallons new water change in my 10 gallon tank. Only because the water here is very soft.

With a 15W T8 you're not going to grow much, and very slowly depending on the height of the tank. What tank are you using, anyway?

Nice look. Why so dark? How long has it been running? I think maybe you need different reflectors to light the whole space.
