As you are there to see the plants, do the blotches look like something on the leaf, or in the leaf? You said it didn't rub off easily, but does it come off at all?

It almost looks like a translucent patch, which is "in" the leaf, and not algae.

By Flourish I assume you mean the Flourish Comprehensive Supplement for the Planted Aquarium ?

That must be a form of algae then. Boredomb dealt with the light previously, suggesting a reduction of an hour, try that.

I note you turn the lights on and off somewhat randomly; a good idea is one of those lamp timers you can get in hardware stores for a couple dollars. A regular daily light period is better. It is not a big thing, but algae is always waiting to take advantage of any little miscue.

The problem is it'S an all in one unit. No way to put a timer on without shutting off the filter also.

So the light does not have its own electrical supply cord? Unfortunate. Just try to be regular then.
