P.s. Add this journal too your sig.
The tank broke out with diatoms, staghorn, and BBA. That was all because of CO2 and new AS. I cut off all the effected leaves of any plant that had staghorn growing on them and I started dosing Glut daily as well as upped my CO2 injection. Lights have also been cut in half from 4 x 54W t5ho to 2 x 54W. The plants are now growing well and algae is disappearing.

I also added my plecos back into the tank a few days ago and they helped tremendously as far as keeping the glass and wood clean.
