Hey, ever since I redid my tank around the end of last year, my tank is now heavily planted but also filled with a bunch of hair algae. It is all over the place. Just this week, i have noticed that my plants are pearling like crazy and bubbles are all over their leaves. I am also using RO water now to lower my nitrate, as my tap has nitrates in it. Does this mean that conditions in my tank are better and that's why my plants are doing better?
hagen c02 w/ bubble ladder
nitrate 20, used to be 40
kh and ph - unknown, test strips are not accurate
hornwort, temporary for nitrate control
duck, also temporary
glosso, staying low and growing well, although some of it is infested with hair algae
I also used to have asian ambulias, but they somehow failed and broke apart
Also, since my plants are getting better and I'm using RO water, should i start dosing Flourish, which I have stopped.
Thanks for all the help!
