  3. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi everyone, Started a new tank about 8 weeks ago. This is pretty much my first real attempt at going somewhat high tech. First weeks I had some diatoms, but those are already pretty much gone. However, I'm dealing with some very aggressive form of brown fuzzy hair algae since two weeks...

    Sorry first time posting here, so I apologize if I used the wrong area for this question. I'm planning my first "real" aquascape with co2 and a real filter, so I'm trying to do it right instead of buying random plants and just planting. I noticed that a lot of people often mixed up their plants...
  5. Algae
    Hi guys, I feel like I'm in a perpetual algae cycle 😕. Anyways I'm trying to salvage some rotala wallichii that was growing like crazy. It has probably grown 3 inches in the week that I've had it but now it's getting choked out by some kind of fuzz or power algae. The tops are showing light...
  6. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi guys, So I have been struggling to get some coloration out of some rotala and also growth has been slow even with CO2 while using a nicrew deluxe LED. I especially have problems in the back corners. I'm thinking of upgrading to a Chihiros RGB A plus and wanted to get your thoughts. 1.) Do...
  7. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi guys, I'm looking for a way to get better light levels to the back corners of a 10 gallon standard aquarium. I've got rotala rotundifolia in one corner which struggles to grow in the back of the bush. In the other corner, I have rotala colorata which struggles as well. I'm using a Nicrew...

    Hi - I'm running an ONF Flat Nano on a 45-P with CO2. Has anyone had experience trying to grow red plants with it? I am thinking of buying some tissue cultured rotala h'ra or maybe something easier.

    Hi All, Can someone suggest me some fast growing stem plants. I recently planted Rotala Indica. I found that Hornwort is also fast growing, but from what I read they might be very hard to prune/clean. After almost 1 and half years, suddenly my tank (which is heavily planted) is battered with...
  10. Plants
    Hello, everyone. Quick question. Do rotala rotundifolia plants only produce new leaves at the tips? I just planted some in my tank a few days ago. I do see some growth at the tips of the plants, but nothing from the main stem. I have fertilizers, high-lighting, and CO2 injection.

  12. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I recently suspected that my aquarium had iron deficiencies, and bought a bottle of ADA Brighty Iron Fe(III) on a whim with a plant package because my rotala colorata was green, and my aquarium plants have been turning a lot redder since. Would Seachem Iron ferrous gluconate work just as well as...

    Hi folks, I bought some aquarium plants on Ebay. The plants were in rough shape when I got them but the good news is that they are recovering. The bad news is that it almost looks from the new leaf growth the seller sold me the same plant but cut different sections and called them different...
