I've had my tropical aquarium for a few years now, always more or less the same setup with plants. However they never seem to look 'healthy', last long or they grow algae.
180L Juwel Vision
Glo T5 lighting with (2x) 39W tubes. They used to be on for 8 hours a day, now just 6 hours. Works out about 1.95 watts per gallon.
only start using Flourish Comprehensive yesterday. Going to use 1 capful (5ml) once a week.
I'm not sure on what plants I have, so heres pictures:
Middle background/right are these:
The background ones are the original plant and the right ones are replanted snips. Lots of algae growing on them, and leaves fall off a lot.
2 plants here, pretty much dead. The big leaf on the right was purple underneath.
My pleco =). These seem to be doing ok, apart from threadlike algae growing on it. It also seems to have roots growing all over it.
Algae growing on it =(
Again algae growing on them. Looks like grass.
I bought a siamese algae eater hoping it would help solve it. It has helped, but it's still there. I have heard shrimps can help?
Any more information needed, just tell me.
Thanks for the help
