First, thank you
Second, I would never recuse more information than requested hahahaha
I started dosing my tank with seachem plant pack lvl1 about 3 weeks ago (plus I added a co2
mini kit) cause I noticed the plants were dying, and now plants are more green, bigger and started showing different color I've never seen in the last months, also they have less holes and no more brown/yellow coloration. But still with tiny small holes.
However Im using aqueon substrate but I'm looking for a better one cause that one doesn't seems to work...(for shrimps and plants as said in the package)
About the light, im looking for the red and blue led
and ill definitely check your tips and references, thank you.
What about propagation? Can I cut the hygro Polysperma anywhere and plant it? (The big one on the left) it is growing roots from everywhere, not only in the substrate and my fish kinda enjoy it, specially dojo loach, always digging them out and resting on them. My angel fish eats some parts of the leaves. They love this specific plant so I want to givem more if my setup allows it.
Thank you again
Edit: I added the lucky bamboo to help with nitrates correct me if I'm wrong

Oftentimes these lights are ineffective at growing plants. I think the best investment someone looking to have a nice planted tank can make is to purchase an adequate light. Everything in planted tanks is predicated on sufficient lighting in order to be successful. A lot of times people new to the hobby are frustrated by plants because they are lacking the right light and don't even know it. I would look into the finnex planted plus fixture. They are pretty affordable for their performance and you will enjoy the results in your tank. Pin holes are indicative of a lack of proper fertilization. Fertilizing the water column is the best way to ensure your plants have the right nutrients to grow. Pick up a good all in one aquarium fertilizer like thrive, aquarium co-op easy green, or seachem flourish. A few squirts a week and your plants will appreciate it. I know that is a lot of info all at once, so if you have any more questions definitely continue to ask!
