I have 36 gallon tank.
The tank has been running about a year and a half. About a month ago I bought a USA Current top with 2 65 watt power compact bulbs.
Since I installed the new light my 2 sword plants have grown almost to the top and I can barely keep up with the pruning on the anacharis, red ludwigia and the calbomba. (sorry about the spelling on that).
My anubias still grows ripped up half size leaves and I have BBA growing on all my older leaves.
My tank specs are:
I do not have a phosphate test. I will get one in September my wife has plans for me every weekend till then
I have a DIY
2 liter CO2
I dose with flourish 3 times a week.
I have read that KH
can effect anubia growth. I have also read that no nitrates can lead to algae growth.
1 Raise my KH
2. Raise my nitrate level
or 3. concentrate on figuring out the whole macro thing, and that will solve all my problems?
