I've been having a problem with my tank. Green algae has taken over
and the broad leaf plant are looking frail. Specifically, the amazon
which shoot out long thin leaves rather than the broad ones. Each
lead is very "veiny". Secondly, portions of the leaves are turning
brown and deteriorating. They never seem to turn yellow, just brown.
The tank is a 25g with 2 x 20W lights (triton & trichromatic)
kh - 4
PO4 - 0.4 mg/l
NO2-N - 0.4 mg/l
lights are on for 12 hours per day and the tank is lightly stocked
Bacopa, broad leaf amazon (sorry don't know the name), rotala
rotundifolia, java moss
At least half the tank surface area is planted.
I feed the fish daily, and dose the tank with ferro vit (iron sup)
weekly, floreal is added during water changes of 10% every 4 days.
Any ideas as to what is causing the leaf browning or the alagal
