I upgraded from a junk Light to a fluval 3.0, so far I don't see much plant improvement but it's only been about a week, but I do see that my cryptocoryne parva are turning yellow (don't know if this is transitional thing) Also noticed I'm getting a lot of algae on my lids but I don't notice any in the tank (it could be there I just don't see it), everyone I asked in a fb group said just be patient but I feel that if I don't find the cause and correct it then I will have everything covered in algae before too long.
I know i need more plants as I don't have many (about 18 stems of Ludwigia repens, a bunch of anubias, 8 stems of money wart (which are producing multiple stems) 10 cryptocoryne Wendtii reds, 1 Amazon sword and a Lil patch of parva.
Light intensity is turned down to im estimating 50- 60%, light on time is 7 hours, I dose thrive 1x weekly @ 5ml after a 50% water change, phosphate is 1.1, nitrate is 25, ammonia zero, nitrite 0, pH 7.5, KH 6 gh 6
Any advice would be appreciated
About to order some cryptocoryne balansae, C. Natan some Buce and moss
