Total beginner here, and first post on the forum, so thank you all in advance for keeping this community up.
Saturday my wife and I started our first ever planted aquarium (and aquarium in general). We've had tons of fun making it, and it looks amazing (at least to us).
After filling it up and lighting it, the plants gave out tons of oxygen, there were bubbles everywhere, but since then, I haven't seen any noticeable photosynthesis activity and I'm wondering if something is wrong.
I've tried adding Flourish Excel, so far with no apparent effect.
Aquarium: We got the Aqueon 10 Gal kit, that comes with filter, hood with some lights and a heater.
Lights: Started with the kit lights then bought NICREW ClassicLED Plus LED Aquarium Light, Full Spectrum Fish Tank Light for Freshwater
Substrate: Carib Sea Eco Complete Planted Black Aquarium Substrate
Plants: We got a selection of plants at a highly rated LFS, really should have taken notes on the types.
Fish: Currently one Betta, would probably add a few neon tetra
This is just after planting - note the bubbles on the green carpet plant on the bottom right. Sorry for bad picture.
And a decent picture
Any advice would be great.
