Thanks guys. I just tested my water. Ammonia is 0, nitrite 0, nitrates 2 or 3 ppm. Ph is. 6.0. I'm using the API master kit. Also, the light is Aqueon's full spectrum T8. I believe it is 8,000k.
My water change schedule is 20% once a week, and I've only been dosing 3 out of 4 weeks. I have excel but I stopped using it once I added the anacharis.
When I took that picture I had just planted the dwarf grass, it was grown emersed so most of it melted. I took it out and replanted the healthy stuff, so it's a lot thinner now.
I won't be able to get any new test kits or ferts until I get paid next week. Is there anything I can put in the tank until then to raise the nitrates?
I'm going to add more shrimp, my Petco put an order in for 30 ghost shrimp for me, they just don't know when they will get some. I've also been thinking of adding some small schooling fish, really want ember tetras, I'll have to see if my LFS has some.
