Do you know what your phosphate levels are? You'll need a test kit for that, for sure, with a planted tank. Also, what are your GH
? You can use the GH
number along with your pH to calculate how much CO2
is in there. Your pH is pretty high with pressurized CO2
so I'm thinking that not alot of the CO2
is getting (or staying) in the tank. Do you run any airstones? They will gas out the CO2
Also, I would not add any more chemicals such as the Algae fix or water clarifier. These almost always cause more problems than they solve. Adding more chemicals is usually not a good thing.
With 3 wpg
and pressurized CO2
, you need to be adding fertilizers to your tank. I think there is a good sticky on this at the top of the planted tank forum page. If your nutrient levels are out of whack you'll get algae, both on the plants and in the water (green water). These imbalances need to be fixed and then the algae problems will then usually go away on their own.
Hope this helps...I just noticed joannde's response so hopefully you'll get plenty of help in the planted tank forum.
