So I have posted many times on a regular forum and I have tried everything recommended and still no luck.
So here's my setup:
55 gal with all normal levels except high nitrates as my tap water is high in nitrates. When I say that I am only reffering to the normal tests. Ammonia, Nitrate and nitrites.
Gravel substrate with one box of First Layer Lytrite and 10 Sea hem root tabs spread throughout
Liquid fert includes:
Flourish macro nutrients
I have 2 t5 bulbs one 6500 28 watt and one 58 watt and one accent light which is 18 inch forget specs.
My issue is the plants grow new sprouts but the plants themselves do not grow tall. When they do grow they get little holes. Not as many as they used to with the addition of potassium. Also they tend to quickly tun yellow and die.
My second issue is a bad case of algae mostly black beard. But when I clean the glass I get brown fuzz and green spots on the glass in like 2 days.
Anyway I don't want to patch anymore I want to do it right. Will dirt substrate resolve of my issues?
Thanks in advance.
