Help with 5 gallon low tech tank
I setup this 5 gallon fluval chi with fluval stratum about 6 months ago. Prior to that, it was gravel for 2-3 years. I saw crazy growth at first followed by crazy algae which really did damage to my slower growing anubias. I lost a lot of leaves on them. Now I sorted out the lighting situation and everything seems to be much more balanced. However I am not getting much if any plant growth except for the rotala Indica. I recently added hydrocotyle Japan and bucephalandra, but neither are doing well. The buces all died entirely back and I am not even sure the rhizome is alive. The hydrocotyle has slowly deteriorated, the stem still seems mostly green but there is no new growth and the leaves are dying. I put a sprig of the hydrocotyle in an emersed setting, and it seems to be doing well. Also, I put in a lovely piece of bolbitis heudelotii which immediately melted back, grew one leaf, and has maintained that for months. I just started using Flourish Advanced fertilizer this past week, but are there any other suggestions or tips that I could try to get them all to grow as well as the rotala? Thanks!!
