The hair grass and the Moneywort have been there for about a month along with some Hornwort that I had floating in the tank, but the rest is a week old.(Hornwort has been removed)
plant list is: Moneywort, hair grass, , Red Tiger Lotus, Crinum Calimistratum, Didiplis diandra, Rotala roundifolia, Heteranthera Stargrass, Anubias heterphylla,

Fish list: 6 Otocinclus Algae Eater,

Equipment: 75 Gal tank, 2X250 watt M/H (6500k), Press. Co2, Diy Reactor, Eheim 2026 filter, a-zoo undergravel heat, ebo-250, 100% Flourite(red).

I dose dry ferts from Greg Watson, They include
CSM+B - 2.5 TBS in 500ml solution (3cc every 2 days)
KH2PO4- .40 grams
K2SO4 - 10.5 grams
KNO3 - 2.3 grams
Epsom salt - 19 grams
Ca CL2- 7 grams
Fe- 7 grams to 500ml h20 ( 1ml every 3 days)

50% water change every 7th day.

This tank was originally set up about a year ago, but my daughters turtle tank broke and he moved into mine, he ate everything from the fish to the plants. anyway he now has a new 20long and I got mine back and have just started over, thank you all for your comments
