People with plenty of Nitrates in the water also dose K2S04 as either a usual macro or in a water buffer with each weekly water change.

Which plants do you have?
Thanks for all you help. I have the long thread algae, staghorn, and the type that is a green, fuzzy carpet.

For plants, I have
one small wisteria
naja grass
ludwigia repens
rotal rotundifolia
two swords (1 amazon and not sure of other one)
three anubias
3 small sagittaria in one bunch
3 bunches of cabomba (fanwort kind)
3 bunches of corkscrew vals
1 large moss ball
3 crypts that got overcome by algae and are now small
Echinodorus Ozelot Red
1 4-inch grass-like plant unidentified
a bit of duckweed
couple of sprigs of hornwort

The light is 17 inches from substrate.
