New Planted Tank Light Period
Hi, looking for suggestions for optimum light period. I have started a new low tech 54 litre (15 gallon). It's 2 weeks old but started with filter media and water from a mature tank. I planted it with Crypts, Valisneria, Anubias, Red Diamond Sword, Ludwigia, Flame Moss with JBL pro flora root tabs.
Fish so far 1 Betta and 6 Rummy Noses.
Last water reading: 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrites, 5 Nitrates.
Light is on for 8 hours per day atm. I've noticed algae appearing on the viewing pane but expect this is normal. I want to avoid any large amount of algae but also want to have the lights on long enough for plants to develop and to hopefully out compete the algae.
