First planted tank - Deficiency

Postby Sushil » Fri Jul 22, 2016 7:42 am

Hello everyone,

This is my first ever planted tank attempt, so started with zero practical experience.
Using old location, tank and equipments(most of them) to get first hand experience.
Started the setup in 2nd week of Jun, installed 2 CPU fans but temp is still within 28-30 deg due to high humidity.

Specification:

Tank Size: 30 X 15 X 18
Light : t5 tube 14W X 5( 8 hrs)
Substrate: Platinum soil
Filter: Eheim 2217 + IPF
CO2: 2 bps
Fertiliser: Lab grade chemicals + Rexoline


Plants: Being new to planted tanks, ordered for plants more than necessary and received much more than expected, all the plants received from Sreepadma were in excellent condition.

Pogostemon Stellatus (Purple)
Pogostemon Stellatus "Dassen" (Purple)
Ludwigia Inclinata "Cuba"
Didiplis Diandra
Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis
Hemianthus Micranthemoides - Didn’t survived in my tank
Echinodorus Tennelus "Micro"
Rotala Rotundifolia “Pink”
Rotala Rotundifolia " sunset"
Staurogyne Repens - In bad condition only few stems left
Eleocharis Parvula "Japanese" (Pot)
Vallisnaria Spiralis
Microsorium Pteropus. "Wrinkled Leaf"
Cryptocoryne Wendtii
Alternanthera reineckii “Lilacina”
Porto Velho - Leaves melting frequently


Algae Issues
==========
Recently I can observe some hair/staghorn algae specially on the slow growing plant or the plant leaves which have been pruned.
Any suggestion to control the same.
