    I am posting some pictures taken today morning.

    ahhhh that means a lack of CO2 for sure. These plants will contract carbon from other chemical combinations (calcium). The remaining valcium will show as a white layer especially on these species of plants (being an extreme fast grower). Co2 or other carbon resources, less light (less growth!!) will solve the problem.

    Hi, is carbon contained inside the filter enough? Should i reduce oxygen coming through the airstone? Could the hairalgae on Anubias be because of high iron?

    No that's no carbon-source for plants. It is even thought to extract some microferts from the water. An airstone does lower the overnight build up CO2 level. If you'd like that to stay, buy some liquid carbon like Easy Carbo or Excel. High Iron doesn't cause those algae to me, but a lack of CO2 or some ferts does !! Cheers Aad

    BTW an airstone doesn't add oxygin but air : it will make gasexchange at te surface better , so it will " equalize" with the air above (CO2 out / O2 in)

    Thanks for your advice.

    Will SEACHEM Matrix Carbon do the job?

    Don't confuse chemical filter media with elements required for plants

    Plant will get carbon from the water in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2) and certain plant fertilizes that have alternate source carbon added to it (like flourish excel)

    Chemical filter media will not add anything to your water
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Will SEACHEM Matrix Carbon do the job? Or EasyLife Profit as fert?

    No, Seachem Matrix is chemical filtration media. It won't do a thing for your plants

    I do not know anything about EasyLife Profit. I would suggest to read the label to see if it has a source of organic carbon.
