"is this enough...?"

Do your plants grow well?
Are they showing any deficiencies?
Any algae getting out of hand? (a trace of algae that doesn't do much is not a problem)

riccia seems to doing very well while other plants got some problems. some of them gets burnt leaf and on some plants leaf gets rotted.

riccia is the only plant i was able to grow without any problem.
