Oblivious_666 Posted February 6, 2022 Share Posted February 6, 2022 Well, I'm being dramatic here. I set up my 29 about five months ago, and it had been thriving with boisterous growth until recently. I noticed the plants have been growing more slowly, and a lot of algae is taking over. I'm fine with some of the algae, because it looks exceptionally nice growing on the driftwood, but I have some hair(?) algae growing on my water wisteria and a BBA outbreak on my scarlet temple. I'll list as much details with photos below: Stats: - Nitrates: ~25ppm - Dosing: 5mL of Fluval Gro+ every two weeks or so (inconsistent due to my forgetful nature 😅) - Stocking: 3x Panda Garras, 11x Harlequin Rasboras, 1x Krib and Pearl Gourami, and 1x Nerite Snail - Water Changes: About every other week My own Diagnoses: - Not enough nutrients, I could try getting root tabs or dosing more consistently, as it is a very heavily-planted aquarium - Not cleaning my sponge filter often enough, could contribute to the mulm buildup? I clean it about every 1-2 months (again, I need to get into the habit of this) Evidence, I mean photos: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
