This my first planted tank that I have been serious about. I have had some low tech tanks in the past sparsely planted. This is a 25gallon, with pressurized CO2 (atomic inline) with 2 Finnex Ray 2's and eheim 2217 /w inline heater. In the back corner I have Ludwigia Cuba, Ludwigia palustris in mid, and Alternanthera Reineckii beside the L. Cuba in the back. The carpet plant is glossostigma. Everything is growing like a weed. I use the EI index ferts from GLA, total root pellets form aquarium plants.com and use the sticky thread here on the site for 20-40gallon as a guideline. I have 14 ember tetras, a pair of Apistogramma Elizabethae, 3 otos, 2 Nerite, some Amano shrimp, and 6 dwarf Corydora Habrosus. I'm at capacity I know
I have a lot of filter and my NO3 are non existent. I made the mistake of using purigen from the get-go I believe.
My questions are what can I do about the hair algae problem? If you look in the pic you can see it quite well in my glosso. My photoperiod is 7hs. My bubble counter is 4 plus and my drop checker is light green to lime green. I have considered algae fix and moving the shrimp to my fluval spec I bought for the fiancée. I know this is a bandaid fix; however, My tank is a month old (I used 1 liter of matrix from a Tropheus tank + prime/stability + snake oil flora and pretty much inta-cycled...impatient)
Another suggestion any thoughts on plants I should add or substract? Suggestions are welcome.
My disclaimer is I know my tank looks pretty bad aquascaping etc.; however, its my first true venture into planted tanks so I am learning as I go
