Any tips for the finnex planted plus 24/7?

I currently have a 36g bowfront
Lighting: finnex planted plus 24/7
Duration: 10hrs
Substrate:eco complete
Co2: liquid co2
Ferts: API root tabs
Plants: assorted

Plants seem to do amazing for the first month and then start to either melt or growth completely stops. After this happens different types of algae take over the plants. Anyone got any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you all so much!!!

You might have low fert numbers.

Yea that's a good amount of lighting. You'll need to dose flourish and potassium aswell I recon.

You could dose dry salts if you wanted to, makes fert dosing a lot cheaper. Here's a guide to dosing PPS pro. https://sites.google.com/site/aquati...r/home/pps-pro

You noted that your lighting duration is 10 hours, but how intense if your lighting? Do you have it dimmed any?
