What's up guys and gals,
So currently I've been letting a 20gallon Hugh tank cycle with just three otos, Yeah I know don't ask me how. Anyways the tanks been cycling for a good month, now I've gotten lazy and have been ei dosing ferts and dosing generic glutaraldehyde (metricide) on the corresponding days BUT I've missed a few water changes. With that all being said the tank looks decent, not overly green but green enough I'm not ashamed to show it.
So now to the fun part. . .while letting this tank cycle I trimmed my jungle val because it was getting too long for my liking and was growing wild, imagine that, basically I trimmed them in the typical way of cutting like a / or \ either way I just picked one. Well the tips have browned but how much brown is too brown and what signals a nutrient deficiency? Below you can find a picture of what I mean.
Now secondly, I know this will be a nutrient deficiency but what does it mean when your Anubias gets pin holes like the picture below?
Moving right along I'd like to also know what the #@?! these things are on my glass I've got snails gator in the tank and really don't mind except the little things in my glass won't [censored] disappear. Picture is below.
Finally to be fair here is a full tank shot and specs.

Filter: eheim 2215
Substrate: dirted with eco complete cap
Plants: jungle val, various crypts, Anubias, Corkscrew Val

Thanks for the view,
