I am a very impatient person who practices a lot of art forms that require A LOT of patience. My sense of time is a little off as well.
My girl reminded me, amidst my panick and urge to throw it all out, that the tank has only been fully running for a week and that I changed to a higher light only three days ago. She told me to give it at least a month before expecting any results and as always she is right :P
I should be picking up a 6500K tropical bulb this week as well as some fertilizer as I haven't given them anything.The new filter seems to give it more motion, hopefully the plant will begin to spread and run around. I am also going to try and reduce the photo-period, most plants grow when the lights are off anyhow.
The transitional phase makes a lot of sense and certainly gives a possibility on to why my plants do not seem to be making a lot of progress. Combined with the fact that I did not dry start them it should take at least a month or more before I see any actual growth.
I believe I have algae growing on my glass as I seeing very tiny strands and specs stuck to the glass. I am dosing with liquid CO2 which should kill the algae, again I don't understand how it is possible.
It's good food for the future shrimps though right?
I apologize for panicking a bit before hand.
Thank you so much for being patient with me
Are we the only ones of this forum btw? lol
