What is the liquid plant nutes?

Read that your lilly has small leaves here. API tabs may help remedy that. Cheapest at LNT.com

Out of curiosity, how long is your photoperiod? I have a dual T5HO but I'm scared to put it on my 29g quite yet. Do you have any algae issues?

My photoperiod is about 8-10 hrs. No algae issues, it helps to have some floaters to subdue the lighting. And plant it heavily!

I use the micro macro solution sold by aquariumfertilizers.com. The lilly is strange it just keeps getting smaller while my tiger lotus just get bigger. I just put it in my newly dirted 55G in hopes that it will take off. We shall see.
