    Green Spot Algae, Anubias Nana Petite

    From my all be it limited experience if you dont wipe the leafs quite regularly you will get algae on them pretty much whatever the light is, a simple test is to wipe the leaf gently and see how slimy/sticky/grimy it is then give it a proper clean, it should almost feel rough to the touch...

    Green thread algae

    My hc was hit hard with green thread in my last scape keep up the water changes and manually remove as much as you can and it will soon dissappear :) a tooth brush is amazingly good at removing the algae just spin it on to the toothbrush like spaghetti on a fork :)

    With your filters dont be to tempted to fill them up ive got an eheim 2217 and use a small layer of noodles like pic 3 and only 1 sponge using to much media and sponge will reduce the flow rate massively Mark

    Diatoms Enigma

    I would definitely recommend an external filter the 501 is imo underpowered rated at 200lph id look for something like an eheim 2213 or similar The eheim 2213 can be picked up on Amazon for around £30 and is a real bargain you wouldnt regret I would 100% say your problems are flow and...

    Diatoms Enigma
