    Hello all
    I want plants to grow in my cichlid tanks but the one that's in theyr hasn't grown or healed and I can't even get algae to grow in it

    You have to give way more information. What plant do you have? What temperature? Parameters? And I'm pretty sure one of the side effects of plants are less algae.

    What species of cichlids do you have?

    I'm not sure of the plant
    The temperature is around 77'F and the water is slightly hard with a neutral Ph and hardly any nitrate

    I doubt you will be able to grow plants with those cichlids.

    I'm not entirely sure about the light I'll check
    They leave the plant alone the fish that bothered it isn't in it anymore
