pmur's 72 Bow

I've been working with this tank since September last year. Any comments are appreciated .

I've got 2x 2217's with pressurized CO2 via an inline atomic diffuser. The second 2217 I've added to replace a powerhead and small hob to remove surface scum. Substrate is eco and flourite. EI dosing, 50% WC weekly.

Today's parameters are...

Params ( Tap, Tank ):
TDS ( 280, 430 ) ppm,
KH ( 6, 6 ) degrees,
GH ( 10, 11 ) degrees,
NO3 ( 0, 40 ) ppm
NO4 ( 0.5, 0 ) mg/L
PH ( 7.6, 6.4 )

Current occupants are:
3x Oto
9x Rummies
9x Cardinals
1x Rubbernose pleco
1x Angel
3x Cory's

Ozelot Sword
Crypt Wendii 'Florida sunset'
alternanthera reineckii 'cardinalis'
Cabomba Carolina
Anubias Nana
Rotala Magenta
Rotala Rotundifolia
Green Something?

The Rotala's seem to struggle, and brown algae is persistent nuisance within this tank.
