I’ve noticed lately that my plants have developed black spots on some of the leaves. I’m guessing it’s algae of some sort. The lights are on for 9 hrs. I’ve recently changed the t8 lights for a nicrew skyled and I have a Superfish retro led. its a 250l tank 60cm deep I dose tnc complete once a weeek. im guessing it’s possibly too much light. What do you think.
