I'm mostly seeing pearling from the algae. I am not sure of the light requirements for my plants. This is what I have:
Micro swords, golden jenny, heteranthera, juncus repens, and mayaca.
I just bought this light because it came highly recommended. It seems awfully bright to me. What do you recommend for a 20H?
The Mayaca is showing the most growth, which isn't a whole lot (maybe one inch in two weeks), and I'm getting a little growth from the Heteranthera, but everything else is stagnant. All but the uppermost few leaves of the Golden Jenny are covered in algae, and the micro swords haven't even sprung a new root in the month that they've been in there.
I should mention that all but the Heteranthera have been planted as-received, which was with the base wrapped in a foam band with a lead weight around it. I assumed it was okay to leave them like this since they were grown this way, but I'm wondering if I should remove the foam and weight and separate them. I just read micro swords should not be bunched together like this.
