    Yeah, plants can get tough. I'm still working out my kinks. Even with the Co2.

    Don't give up! Your tank looks very nice, and that makes it worth the hard work. I know some day I will achieve that "perfect balance." But I'd rather take my lumps and learn than end up with an "accidentally" perfect tank. Cuz then I'll never learn how I got there. My "jack-ups" are really teaching me a lot.

    Trust me, some days I want to rip all my plants out and just throw some plastic ones in there, or some cool rock formations, but then I remember that I need to stay focused on the goal at hand. And in the end, we'll know that we're successful through our hard work!

    Keep it up man! Keep it up!

    smaug, I think I finally understand exactly what is going on in your tank and why you don't really have a huge need for additional CO2 even with the amount of light and ferts you are using. Seeing the pictures you put up clued me in. You have a ton of floating plants that I assume are water lettuce. Those things are sucking up most of your extra nutrients. Did you recently remove a number of them? If so that could account for the algae growth.

    they have only been in there for a few months there is actually more of them now then there were a few weeks ago.I may be confusing some with the talk of algae,the only plant it grows on was the micro sword.I had a huge outbreak of BBA last year about this time,I did a complete tear down and did a bleach nuke on everything,that is gone now.I am not even sure that it was algae on the micro sword or what it was.It wouldnt wipe of ,it seemed as if it were actually part of the leaf.Is micro sword similar to vals?Could be it was a reaction to the excel similar to the troubles Lady Hobbs has.Whatever it is.Im done with MS.And yes they are water lettuce,and I have WAY too many.Most will be going to my pond very soon.Thanks for the ideas GB.

    You're right, plants can be a bugger, I am also struggling with mine, however on the upside I think your tank is absouletly stunning and should be entered in TOTM. ABSOULETLY STUNNING:)
