I dose flourish comprehensive, API co2 booster in conjunction with DIY co2 and just recently started doing phosphate and nitrate....

I may add some root tabs to the swords as they are root feeders and look pretty pitiful.

I'm also going to be altering the photoperiod down. As per cleaning crew I've been looking for a 3 ottos however big als is always sold out when I go... I currently have 1 maybe 2 ammanos nut they get eaten by my rams lol

Try and stop the Comp and dose the pottasium I found doseing all three separately my plant took off. Give it at least two week.
I also dose a little on the heavy side and I'll very happy with the results. I was very disappointed with Comprehensive. You will need to dose trace and iron as well. This all seemed to Solve the algae problem I had.
