New scape is in dry start here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/s....php?t=1294045
. Phee, what a weekend that was.
Anyways, the original tank continued to get algae since I kept the lights on for 8 hours at 100%. However, after abstaining from any macros for at least two or three weeks, the plants took off. I continued micros and magnesium during that time as well. The second and third generation of leaves seemed to be OK too. However, a few rotala that were hanging on seemed to be permanently stunted.
One thing I noticed but didn't get to test enough was that the algae seemed to blow up the day after I fed my tank bloodworms. Maybe I've been over feeding as well. A block of bloodworms typically lasted me 1 week.
I did transfer some of the plants into the holdover 10 gallon that is storing my fish, but the dead leaves started producing what looked to be a white fungus in their area. I assume this is because the 10 gallon is getting nearly zero light. My guess is that algae can't grow but the fungus can.
Anyways, onto newer, hopefully greener pastures.
