Ok so I am pretty new to the planted tank - only in it for about 7 months now, and am still very much learning everything. The last bit my plants have been dying, all the roots going brown and the plants that I take out of the tank smell bigtime.
Here is my setup:
Coralife CF - 2.88 WPG
Injected CO2 with Rhinox 5000
setup for about 7 or 8 months
PH - 7
I am currently adding:
Magnesium sulphate - 1/3tsp
potassium sulphate -1/3tsp
potassium nitrate -1/3 tsp
Something called KN -1tsp
All every 2nd day
I am sure I am not overfeeding as I am very careful and didn't have this problem until recently (Like last month or two) the only thing that changed is I got the Green slime algae which I know can kill plants, I treated with Erythromycin and got some more bottom feeders...this algae is now gone.
My tank isn't overstocked either I dont think:
2 Discus about 2.5" or so
2 German Rams
10 Neon tetras
2 Clown loaches (Each about 1.5")
My substrate is Flourite and about 3" deep or so.
Any ideas as to what the problem is? Like I said I am very new to this, I feel like maybe I am missing something & Everytime I get opinions they all cross each other.
I would REALLY appreciate any help befor I have to throw out all my plants!!
