Hello! I’m new here. I joined specifically to get help with this issue before it gets out of hand. I am not new to planted tanks but I have a new light that I don’t know what to do with.
I have a 75 gallon planted tank with established crypts, rotala, dwarf aquarium lily, anubias, and pothos out the top
. I am trying to get ludwiga, tiger lotus, and giant hygro going as well but they are new. I dose Excel, root tabs, 1/2 doses of easy green and a touch of easy iron. It is fully stocked with rainbowfish and barbs and a couple nerites. The barbs clean ALL food off the substrate very well. and I do weekly 50% water changes. TDS 120, GH3, KH3, PH 7.2, ammonia and nitrite 0, nitrates are <20.
I was running an Aquaticlife Edge LED in this tank for about 7 years with an approximately 9 hour photoperiod and a siesta in the afternoon… but it started going on the fritz a month ago so I purchased a Fluval Plant 3.0. I am kind of lost on how to set up the new light properly. I keep fiddling with it and I am getting diatoms and green dust/spot algae now which I did not have before. Please help! I would love to copy someone else’s settings. Here’s what I have set on the light now but I have been messing with it a lot trying to learn how the app works and dial in the photoperiod and light levels.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
