Light: FEIT costco shop light x2 (temp)
Filter: Fluval 406 + Inline heater
CO2: Aquatek basic, inline DIY reactor
Fertilizer: GLA PPS-Pro dry kit.
Substrate: fine inert gravel and seachem red fluorite50/50
Stock: ~45 Neon tetras, 6 algae eaters, 2 golden angelfish

Plant list:
• Limnophila aromatica (or Pogostemon stellatus?)
• Valisneria spiralis (?)

Initially caused I believe by excessive iron supplement. it looks like I'm starting to with this battle though: lights areon for 7 hours, spot treatments with peroxide, dosing metricide14 daily,religious weekly 50% PWCs and increased Macros. white dead staghorn is stillthere, hopefully out soon.
