Why can I not get this right! Ugh
Okay my tank is full of algae and none of my plants grow! I have a aqueon 36 gallon bow (dimensions 30"L x 15"W x 21"H), Wavepoint t5 HO with one bulb running 39watt 6500k, 2 HOB filters, Eco complete substrate with occasional root tabs, and co2 cranked up to about 6bps. I dose 1/4 tsp KNO3 and 1/16 tsp of KH2PO4 every other day and 1/16 tsp Plantex CSM+B on alternating days. My co2 is diffused by an atonomizer located under a hydor korali circulation pump, but my drop checker barely turns green! I have had co2 for about a year and I have seen no improvement. My plants are jungle val, micro sword, amazon swords, crypts, java ferns, and a few stem plants I forget the names. I have a eheim canister filter I thought about hooking up instead of the HOB's. I thought the HOB's might be gassing off all of my CO2. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am on the verge of giving up on this tank.
