I looked up the pics of Altenanthera
reineckii/sessilis but I don't think it's the red
plant that I have in my tank. My red plant is totally
red in color, no green at all. Stems and leaves are
all red. I'm really curious what species does it

Yea, I added in Jobe's fern and palm sticks last week.
I saw other plants started to grow fast. But nothing
happens to the red one yet. I don't want to add too
much fertilizer for now because I betetr try to
control algaes in my tank. I've added a little bit of
liquid iron too.

Yes, I do about 25% of water change every 3 days. I'm
going to use PMDD. I have Mg(Epsom Salt) and KN03(tree
stump remover) with me now. I still have to purcahse
the trace elements mix and K2S04. Can I add in Mg and
KN03 for now?
