Looking nice :)

Defo reduce your light thought. 12 hours in a low tech tank will lead to the plants to burning themselves out.

Go for 8 hours max at about 70% (I’m not that familiar with the Fluval light).

Also look at a more ‘complete’ fertiliser.

The more light the hungrier they’ll get, with no co2 and low ferts they quickly go leggy and go over.

Hope that helps.
