1st planted tank
I've been lurking around for awhile. I recently converted from a fish only tank to a planted aquarium. I made the changes slowly and as I could afford to.
The tank is a 30 gallon half moon.
The substrate is the same as I had, quartz sand with all different sized gravel.
The lights are desk lamps with Feit led bulbs in 5000k 700 lumens x 2 and ebay eco something 24 inch 6500k 1800 lumens.
Api hob filter.
Green machine sterilizer.
Paint ball co2 2 bubbles per second.
Api leaf zone ferts.
Livestock are 19 neons, 9 rasbora het, 4 ottos, 1 bushynose pleco, 2 kuhli loaches, and red cherry shrimp x ?
All water parameters are good 0 0 20.
Plants are going insane, growing up. I have 2 questions though.
How to get rid of black beard algea?
Should I use different/more ferts other than leaf zone?
Thanks for any information in advance.
