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!"My call sign is digital3... But you can call me Joda!"

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.

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:)Karen
