I started a 10g last Nov.-Dec. I have 6 celestial pearl danios, one male guppy, and sometimes up to 30 fancy guppy fry, or their female parent. It has rotala, 1 small java fern, 3 small dwarf lotus, some dieing apogenoten bulbs and italian val. The lotus and appogenoten are pulled of parent plants in my 29g tank. Substrate is eco-complete with some black coated gravel on top. I have 2 15 watt florescent bulbs one 18,000K the other 8,000K. Everything besides the rotala has its older growth melting. What can I do to ensure faster growth or less melting? I had a massive algae problem in the tank's infancy but after removing my mopani wood from foster and smith the algae subsided. Should I put the wood back in for the java to be on top of? I'm tired of having a fish tank with a few plants, instead of a lush forest.
