Im sure i was over feeding, I was being too dramatic, because I got neons and a dwarf gourami so the gourami eats most of it, so i would feed them what they could eat in like 10 minutes,,, i have cut down feeding, and i will test my phosphates in a while. theres 2 CF 10 watt bulbs....so 20 watts total.(not very high)...as far as how heavy the tank is planted, i would say its medium-heavily planted.

Ok sorry about this dumb question but whats 'EI'?. So I should do a 50% water change? I usually do a 30-35%..Thanks for the help.
