I forgot to tell that I am using sunsun canister filter, but now I saw in my tank glass that small small green spots. I think now algae is forming , I also do 30% water change every weak

Pls advise me

few good things and few bad things. You are getting algae and portovelho is growing, so your light is adequate.

You can do two things, (a) get more variety of plant which are growing and fill the tank. (b) Trim the plants to have 4-6leaves on stem and replant them. That way you ll avoid future algae etc. Otherwise you have very less plants.

good luck!

check if u have some emersed plants...emersed plants will melt first as their leaves r not accustomed to submerged conditions :)
