Re: Stunted growth - Algae growth

The plant shown is not Eichornia diversifolia.  I am not sure, but 
perhaps it is an Ammannia species. As far as the appearance of the 
plant, I suspect magnesium deficiency.  The hairy algae looks like 
the same species as the moundy algae.   I doubt that curing the 
deficiency will make the hair algae go away.  Perhaps getting the 
tank more crowded with plants will at least suppress it more.
