BBA is starting to show up on my glass as well. BBA taken over some of the older leave on my Swords. I just got done cutting some of the older leave off.

anyways, im trying to find out if my tank is low/med/high light.
Im using 3 23watt CF bulb with i think 6 or 8inch dome. From the sand to the bulb its 17inch, Top of water to bulb is right at 4inch.

Im doing EI dosing, 5gallon water change every other day, 50% water change on sat-day.

2x 1/4TSP kh2po4
3x 1/4TSP k2so4

Co2 bubble count is at 3-5 bubble per sec.
