Newly planted tank not growing so well...
Hey all, I've kept several successful tanks on the PPS Pro method and have just started another for the first time in years. Problem is nothings really happening and I've got no idea where to turn, hopefully I can find the answer here.
3 week old 75g moderately planted.
Pressurized co2 (bpm is very high, difficult to count)
Plants are barely growing, GDA is on the glass, starting to show on the substrate and some plants...and green strands of algae starting in spots. I was doing 50% w/c every other day, tank still seems slightly hazy.
8 hour light cycle (4 x 54w T5 HO)
Parameters as follows:
PO4 seems low so I just added a touch before posting. Also since I've been noticing low PO4 levels I've doubled the amount that the macro recipe stipulates.
That seems to be about all I can think of at the moment, hopefully someone can see where my issue is.
ps only inhabitants at this time are about a dozen nerites.
