Thanks for looking! I think I had it in dsm for 3-4 months. I should have flooded it after 2 months because I went on a trip during the last month and had a lot of it die off and BGA issues while I was gone.

Hehe, I've been eyeing that 12 gallon long just sitting on it's shelf and trying to decide to get another one. You better get it before I get the funds. lol

That's good to know. Don't think I'm ready for another tank yet. Just filled the 17 and having problems with algae even with water changes. Think ill wait till everything settles down. You should get one! Ill definitely keep up with your journal. Haha

Sorry to hear about the DSM. Were you not seeing enough growth or is it because you replaced the dhg with blyxa? Because, it looks like the HC is still healthy.

What kind of algae are you having problems with? I would think it's brown diatoms at this stage of the tank. Try adding adding in feeder shrimp to clean up and put in some temp floating plants to soak up extra nutrients and to dim the light a bit.

Hey kai808. My hc started to melt. Actually my hc melted completely. Couldn't stop it. Luckily the few cuttings I put outside grew so I just threw those in and filled it. Only started seeing new leaves on the hc yesterday. Hopefully they take off but I doubt it. Majority of the hc is covered with brown algae. I have floaters and feeder shrimp in there plus a sae. Lights are on only 6 hours and I've been doing about 25% water change every or every other day. Also have a buch of random plants behind the blyxa hoping that would suck up the nutrients. Idk I suck at this. Didn't have this problem with the 5 gallon or 3 gallon I started previous to this one.
