What's at the root of this? (Green spot, dying leaves)...56k AWAY with ye!
I'm wondering if something's amiss here - I know my CO2 levels are pitiful, but I'm putting half a capful of Excel every other day and Flourish twice a week until I get a pressurised system. The new growth seems OK, yet the older parts of the leaves are dying.
Also, this green spot algae...normal from what I've read?
I've never 'trimmed' the grass (pygmy chain sword) - perhaps that's part of the issue.
