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.
