Carpet stopped growing


I have a planted 2.9nano tank. I was growing a carpet but then algae hit the tank. After multiple water changes, the algae situation seems to be under control. I trimmed the part that were covered in brown/green algae. But after a week, I notice that the carpet is not growing at all. Any tips to help better recover from an algae bloom? I inject co2 but they don't make bubbles like they used to

Hi Yaup! Welcome to TPT!

You're going to need to provide a whole lot more information than that if you want any decent answers.

Light- Which light and how many hours
Ph, Gh, Kh, Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate levels
Fertilization regiment, if any
CO2 concentration
Plant list
How long has the tank been running? Is it cycled?
Photos if possible

Fill these out, any we'll be able to help!

If you ever think you're too small to make a difference, spend a couple of nights sleeping with a mosquito.
