Hi all As a previous member, I've not been on here for some time because I had to give up all of my tanks while I moved house a few times. I'm now back on my feet and I purchased this 6' x 2' x 2' tank in January 2017. I planted it and ran it without fish for around 6 months whilst the plants grew in and the tank was reasonably successful for around 24 months. Around 6 months after that, I let the maintenance go a little and some algae started creeping in, so I decided to rescape the tank in August 2019. I decided to go with lower maintenance plants so went with Crypts and Amazon Swords. Unfortunately, as you can see, things haven't gone to plan and things didn't improve after the rescape. All plants remained green after the rescape, but nothing grew, but I put that down to a low lighting period. Then the algae started creeping in and has slowly got worse. I've played around with the CO2 but my Clown Loaches already respire heavily towards the end of the lighting period so I don't feel I can put this up. There is enough flow to make the Crpyts at the front sway a little so I feel this is ok. I have been wondering whether too little light or too short a lighting period has had some hand in this but I know this is rarely the problem so I haven't messed with it. I'm now to the point where I'm thinking of getting rid of the tank so would really appreciate some help please!
