I planted my 10 gallon betta tank about 3 months ago and my plants arenít doing so great. I have 2 watts per gallon. I have just regular small black gravel. I use Seachem flourish liquid once a week. I just yesterday bought Seachem flourish tabs. Itís only been just over 24 hours. So I canít expect results this soon. Will the tabs help? Can I still use the liquid Seachem once a week or is that over kill with the tabs I just put in? I also have a lot of algae on the glass and the plants. The water also gets cloudy 2 or 3 days after my weekly water changes. I have been plucking off dead leaves as soon as I see them. What am I doing wrong? I thought I did all the research I needed to do before I dove into plants. I tried to put 3 otoís in there but my betta wasnít going to have any of that so I took them out. What should I do? I keep the tank at 76 degrees. And I buried half my heater in the gravel.
Thanks for any info
