Here are the specifics
30 gallon tank has been up and running for about a year, with CO2 installed about 4 months ago.
Gravel substrate with osmocote root tabs every couple of months. EI dosing daily with AquariumFertilizer.com Macro Micro blend mixed per directions and dosed at 2.5ml per day. The contents of the blend are listed below. 50% water change every week.
Marine Land LED running the length of the tank (42 LEDs) with an 8 hour on time. Fluval 206 cannister with stock bio media and floss. NO charcoal is used. The CO2 runs at a fairly high bubble rate. None of the fish are gasping for air and all of the plants pearly heavily. CO2 turns on about an hour before the lights turn on and turns off about an hour before they go off.
10 gold barbs, 6 kuli loaches, 5 oto cats, 1 pleco. MTS and ramshorn snails. Lots of plants (see pics). 1 Large amazon sword, 1 large set of wisteria, 1 large set of a tall thin val that blooms weekly. 1 large set of a small leaf stem plant (not sure what it is). 1 annubis that puts of 2-3 new leaves per week. 1 large set of dwarf chain swords and grow like weeds
I have explosive growth on everything except the dwarf lilies. I have to aggressively trim the plants every two weeks or the tank will be completely overgrown The dwarf lilies just kind of sit there and they look like they are missing something.
WHAT DO I NEED TO CHANGE? Not enough iron??
