Hi all
1st post. Just returned to keeping a planted tank after a 10 year gap. Current set up is a 55l tank with a fluval 106 external, diy co2, ei fert as per standard recipe and 22 watt led light.
Currently quite pleased with how everything is settling in, all is growing well. But, can anybody spot from my photos anything I could be doing better? I have focused images of the P. Helferi and A. Reineckii as these are my worse performers. I think the P. Helferi is getting overshadowed more than it would like and I have moved the A. Reineckii recently which I know it doesn't like but how do I stop it being an Algae magnet? I trim off the worst of the older leaves but it keeps coming back. No obvious algae issues anywhere else, just this plant.
Flow is good in this little tank as every plant moves with the flow. Any constructive feedback is most appreciated.

The plants look really healthy for the most part. I think helferi is suffering a little from co2 distribution in the older leaves, going by the pin holes but this is probably because of your excellent growth.

Hopefully someone with more knowledge will be along to help soon.
