I just changed over an old tank. I got mixed results lil over a month in. Some plants are doing ok, others are stuck.
I'm curious about my lighting. For my 46 gallon (20" tall) is a 24/7 se and Beamswork DA 6500k gonna cut it for carpet plants? S Reps look kinda stunted And algae > growth. Run 24/7 in 24 mode and DA 7.5h.
As an experiment I've put a led spotlight over the SReps and they go from a small amount of pearling to maybe 3x as much. Not sure if that's actually a sign of more light needed especially since I'm dealing with green dust and spot algae.
Root tabs, Seachem ferts
Hard Water (kh 7)
pH Co2 6.5
Ammonia .5 (day before water change)
Any advice greatly welcome.
