Did you? I asked about macro testing/ dosing in another thread. The picture is taken against the back wall where I donít clean the glass for the nerites/ otos. Itís dust/ gsa on the glass for sure and thatís fine with me. Makes my algae eaters happy.
On the plant itself is what I was worried about and it doesnít look like Cyano
in person. After posting this I did some more searching in google image search and I think I answered my own question. Looks exactly like pictures of green fuzz algae to me.
Iím not sure if it is only on a few stems of this one plant because that plant is just not doing well or maybe just because the algae got a head start in the tank at the store. But every time I consider pruning or taking it out to dip it I see a Cory resting on it and I feel bad... 😂 the whole school of them seem to have set up that fuzzy tuft as base camp.
Regarding macro dosing in my other thread, I am
still trying to figure out how much fertilization this tank needs. Iíd like to add more livestock so bioload balances more nicely with the plants macro needs but I donít want to add anything that will make a meal of my shrimp so for the moment itís too understocked / overplanted to get the macros it needs from stock / fish food.
Iíve just been trying to keep nitrate/phosphate above zero. I know most people dose things much higher levels but I guess my logic is that if itís still at a measurable level in the tank that is the extra nutrients that the plants havenít used up yet.
Iím not concerned with maximizing growth in this tank; just finding a balance.
