Also you might want to(if you haven't already) remove the algae the best you can. I also found it easier to leave just a small amount of the hair algae in one spot just so I have an eye indicator on how it is doing. If it is spreading or not. Once I figure out it is not spreading I remove the last of it all together. I is just easier for me to know what to do if I have eye indicator.

I agree with all that's been said by others. I would just add that the Wisteria is not likely to do well, so you might consider removing. It is clearly dying off now. Mine did the same. And the reason is light; this is a high light plant. You still need to get the balance back as others mentioned, but don't expect the Wisteria to rebound.

I'll keep a little algea as an indicator . . . good advice. Yes, the Wisteria is getting the hi-ho. I had purchased a good lump of it when I first planted my two 10gals. A ton of it died off initially but the rest survived. Now the rest is dieing too. I was shocked it lasted so long! Byron - thank you again for your initial influence in getting me started with live plants. I'll never go back . . .
