Tank getting a bit out of control
It's been a while since I've posted, but I wanted to show some pics of my current setup and get some advice. You can find detailed specs in my profile. I seem to be getting quite a bit of algae (I realize it's probably from my T5HO). Also, I notice some of my taller plants will decay or something towards the top, so I'm not getting a lot of height in my plants. I have a small, grass-like foreground plant, but I can't remember the name of it now. It's spread out throughout the substrate, but doesn't seem to get real lush. Or, some parts will be longer grass, and some just lies flat. I have fertilizer, but I haven't been using it. My corkscrew val has taken over lol and I don't know if (or how) I should propagate it down.
Also, I wonder if my filter output is causing too much disruption? I've tried adjusting the flow, but it keeps pushing my floating plant to the side. That plant also tends to attract the black beard algae a lot too.
I'd like to get this tank back in control and get some sort of "plan" to it. I'm totally open to suggestions. Thanks!
