First off all my specs will be at the end of this.
Lets start here, I've had my planted tank up and going for about 4 months now. All of plants are doing fine with the exception of a little yellowing of just a couple leaves every once in awhile. But the thing is nothing is really growing, they are all just staying the same as when I bought them. What am I doing wrong? Why is nothing growing? Getting frustrated.
29 gallon tank.
5 neon tetra
5 glow light tetra
2 false julie cats
1 dwarf albino brisel nose
1 Cherry barb- tried to catch him but to fast and didn't want to mess up plants
3 Amino Shrimp
2 Cherry Shrimp
Don't know really any names of the plants, but you can look at the pic
I do know the dwarf baby tears, which I wanted to grow real bad but didn't. The cats swim around it so much most is floating up top.
