I just replanted my tank with the offspring of my old plants, and some new bulbs so it looks a little sparse as it hasn't filled in yet. I believe what I have here is a type of Aponogeton, but perhaps a dwarf variety? The neons are directly over it, not in the foreground, the plant is really that small.
It is beginning to grow a tiny stalk just like a larger aponogeton. Hopefully I can get some babies from it. I was wondering why the leaves are all different colors? Brown, green, red...is it because of not enough wattage of lighting? (1.5W/gal)
Also I don't have a scrap of algae in my tank, but what I do have is this dark green tiny little tufts of hairy stuff... Its hard to take a proper picture of but...
You can see it to the left of the onion on the glass.
and here on the back glass.
How do I get rid of it? Its starting to grow on the leaves of the other plants and is choking them. You can see it growing on the moneywort.
I have a mild snail problem and unfortunately they won't eat this stuff and neither does my Oto...
So before it kills my good plants how do I kill it?
