Do you disturb the substrate during trimming ?
It is a complete problem of balancing, in planted tank you have to balance Light, Fert and CO2.
Now what you have to do is to change 70% of water weekly for 2 week and then 50% weekly
Use internal power filter for filtration or any type of filter that do not disturb water surface, because surface agitation helps CO2 to escape from water column and with it you can use extra power head for circulation
dose as per your routine and try to change the fert to lab grade is less costly in long term.
What is the l x b x h of your tank ?
In the mean time if possible change the substrate to coarse sand, and rescape the tank.



Yes...you are absolutely right...now I am also doubtful about those fertilizers :( now it is time for lab grade fertilizer.
lxbxh are 2.5 ftx1ftx1.5ft
yes dada I am also thinking to change the substrate now. Do you mean coarse sand as "chini dana" or simple construction sand??
yes during trimming few parts of substrate is disturbed also and from that time it is stated to melt.
Okay as per your instruction I will change the filter and will install internal power filter as soon as possible. ^:)^
Dada what do you think.light is okay or not?
Thanks & Regards

coarse sand

Light : your tank base is 30" x 12" = 360sq", you need 10 to 13 lumen per sq" but if you thinking for matting min 15 lumen per sq"

Okay now I understood what is course sand...thank you for the picture.
Thank you for your valuable advice dada...I have already installed internal power filter in place of top filter.Now my task is to change the substrate and correct the light.
But one thing 10-13 lumen/sq inch will not cause BBA as it is high enough.
Thanks & Regards

Firstly arrange fert and then change the full setup

Light is solely not responsible for algae growth but the imbalance of light, fert & CO2 and also tank maintenance & water quality

Okay dada...thank you very much for your valuable inputs...It will help me a lot.
now I will change the fertilizer to lab grade and after that will change the full set up. Hope then situation will change.
Thank you again for your time. If any other problem arise can I PM you directly?

Manganese in Mn. epsom salt is MgSO4.7H20. epsom salt and sandha namak r not the same stuff. sandha namak is rock salt.

I am keeping one 30 G planted tank from last 2 years.But suddenly from last 4-5 months my plants are started to melt.I am giving the details below-
size-30G
light-18 watt LED light (2ft tube) 1no and 18 watt CFL tube (2ft) 1no
Fertilizer-micro and macro regularly on alternative basis
Co2-Using DIY sugar yeast co2
Filter-DIY top filter with 5 lit bucket having full with filter sponge (no chemical media)
Substrate-2-3mm stone chip.
Water change-every 2 weeks (50%)
Just few months back it was lash green jungle but suddenly everything changed.Now the problem is that the vallisneria are not growing, all my pygmy chain sword melted,new leaves in anubias nana is smaller in size and not well even older leaves started to melt.Java fern leaves are also melted.all other plants are faced root rot and leaf melt.Should I dismantle the tank and replant again?
what is the reason I am unable to understand.It is very depressing.I am attaching all photos.please help me to find out the reason.

from the pics it look like P deficiency. add some P and keep the circulation well in d tank. see it doesnt matter if the tank is stable for how long. the most crucial faactor in a planted tank is the water quality. if tap water quality deteriorates, the tank will too if the fertilization in nt changed accordingly to overcome the hurdles.
