New to planted tanks, need verification.
I have a new planted tank, been going for just about a month now. The plants all started out very nice and green/red but some have been getting brown (im thinking algae), some losing their red, I think I need more ferts, been using root tabs and flourish. Also probably need CO2, I'm too poor for a pressurized CO2 I think (need to figure out how cheap I can do it) but would a DIY CO2 provide the plants some of what they need? Do you think I need CO2?
I have 110W in a standard 55 gal tank so I think its enough lighting.
No clue on water params other than ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, pH because I dont have another water tester.
Ill post pictures once I get em taken. (yay camera phone)
