My ammannia is just "there" It grows rather slowly but it is unfortunately taking forever to completely transition. I think it should take off once it finished the transition but until then I deal with it.

To much Co2 and not enough lighting. The tank can crash and have all kinds of PH problems.

To much Co2 and not enough ferts. Same as above with to much lighting and not enough ferts.

to much ferts and not enough light. Extremely bad. Plant growth will slow and algae will abound.

To much fert and not enough Co2. Instant plant burst until they run out of Co2 to synthesise with. Instant algae problem

Also remember that the bulbs spectrum plays a huge role. Bulbs out of spectrum or worn out will contribute to either no growth or algae problems.
This is why I questioned about the lighting, CO2, and if there were any algae growth. With no algae growth, I would have to suspect not enough CO2.

Bring on the suggestions, I am always up for any opinions, as long as constructive and this has all be just that, constructive! Lots of possibilites and could be any of them just because the tanks are just that, 2 different tanks.

There is a chance that the cause is the plexi cover I have over the second tank. The first one has glass. I am sure there is a refractory difference and it could be blocking some of the spectrum of light that the other tank is getting. Just never thought of it before.
