Just started dosing ADA Brighty K + ADA Step 1

i added a mini heater and its on 26c (78F)
There is some algae started its look like Staghorn Algae im not sure yet they are pretty small , its like brown hair on plants

My JBL Eco 80 CO2 (its like DIY systems) still not getting me to level that i need from CO2

Any recommendation for a nano CO2 system ?

Hello everyone

After 2 weeks getting alot of Green hair algae, just start reducing my light from 7 hours to 3.5 hours

stopped ferts and keep dosing flourish excel

getting another Bio CO2
keep WC %10 daily

let's hope that's work
I feel your pain, this stage of starting up a new tank can be disheartening but it's not uncommon. Things will turn around once you get the balance right.

I think 3.5 hours photoperiod is not enough, try 6 hours, but most importantly you need to sort out your CO2 ASAP. The Do! Aqua Music Glass diffuser is made to be used with pressurised CO2 systems, I'm not sure how well it would work with that JBL Bio setup. Maybe try a disposable cartridge style CO2 system.

You need some shrimp to clear out that hair algae. I've not had any issues with green hair algae since I started keeping Caradina NT nilotica (Darwin Algae Shrimp) in my tanks. They are similar to Amano shrimp.

Hey all
just added 4 chili rasbora to the tank after 2 months, they used to be 5 but i think the pet shop misses one so i got 4, they are doing great but one of them is dominating the tank so badly!!!

latest photo took today before 3 hours from closing the light

You need to use some fertilization. Mine happened the same thing when I first started a planted tank. My plants were dying in my nano and once I started using fertz, everything came back to life.

Bump: oops, nevermind. I didn't see your setup.
