Hi
I'm new to the planted tank community. But very passionate about it. This is my first attempt on scaping a tank. I'd really like your views on it. Please tell me if there is anything I can do to improve. 🙏🏻 I'm already beginning to see algae growth even though I'm doing frequent water changes.

Hi all,
Welcome to UKAPS.

Try adding some floating plants, they aren't CO2 limited so can make use of all the <"available light"> and <"nutrients">. They will act like a <"net curtain"> and will diffuse the light until your slower growing plants get going.

I'd probably see that <"as a positive thing">. Have a look at <"Heated propagator">.

Hi Darrel
I have ordered a Neo DIY CO2. I'm expecting it in a week. It's a very low budget tank. I will add frogbits to the tank I hope that will work coz i don't have a lot of options. We don't get much aquatic plants here.
Can you also suggest me if i should dose my tank with fertilizers? This tank is 2 weeks old now. Water TDS is 120. I don't have a test kit yet. I'll get it as soon as I can. But my epiphytes are turning yellow. Only the leaves though. I assume the plants were grown emersed. And i want to help them stabilize in their new home.
