I will try to help you because 8.2 is the pH of my water before I add any
I am just a novice trying to learn, here is what I do and I have good growth
but I am sure it won't be like your CO2 tank.
First of you might want to get an answer from someone else on the lighting
but from what I have read you don't want to go to high on it without the
addition of CO2.
I add the following - all Seachem products except for my traces which are
Dupla / Excel / Flourish / K+ / PO4 / NO3 / Fe
I add the Excel pretty much by the directions and then I try to keep the
others in Tom Barr's recommended ranges.
I will tell you I used to use phosphate remover and tried to keep the Fe low
to combat algae but when I stopped doing that and raised the PO4 and Fe I
have had better growth and less algae.
As far as plants I have had good luck with most -- just give them a try and
see what happens.
