New on here i have plant troubles!
I have a problem with my plants in my aquarium.
My setup has been running for a while now over 6 months. the fish are:
3 neon tetras
3 male guppies
7 small guppies
1 ablino cory
1 bristle nose catfish
My aquarium is 55 litreI have a internal filter, a compressed co2 system set up. and lighting on a 8 hour a day timer.
The problem is the valsneria just seem to have stunted growth !
I see runners pop up the die off and the plants that are of a decent size just dont change or grow !
I use a iron fert as advised by my local pet dude which i dose exactly as he advised, every 2 day 0.5 ml
All water levels are as the requirements of the fish as far as i have read/studied !
PH 7.2-7.5 raises a little after water changes but drops soon after
NO3 is 25/50 finding it hard to understand what is the best level for this.
N02 is 0
I have also been reading about a supplement called Seachem, is this any good ?
Any suggestions ?

What wattage and color temp of lighting do you have on the tank right now ?If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Hate to say this but you got two schooling species in very low numbers. Neons and cories.
Vallis offshoots dying, perhaps open a plant question. If at all possible a picture or two would be nice. First thing that comes to my mind is either very heavy gravel or too much co2.
