I'd think so, I've added a liquid fertilizer, and the tank seems pretty good for live plants, I have another Java Fern and it's doing great.do you think there are enough nutrients in the water?
A gentle brush with a toothbrush or something along those lines? Uhh I'd say for atleast 8 hours or so? There is soemtimes when direct sunlight gets into the tank before I can cover it up if that has anything to do with it.Looks like diatoms / algae to me . Try to give the leaves a gentle brush . How long are your lights on for ?
Can I just say your ( spikey?) moss is looking lush !
I don't think so.. they're both about the same I'd say. However the one in question definitely gets the bulk of the lighting from the tank, maybe that's got something to do with it?Is this one closer to or more exposed to natural day light than the other one maybe ? Yeah try just a brush off with your fingers first to see if that helps , if not then a soft toothbrush works wonders ! My Anubias definitely benefited from a this when I had a diatom bloom.
Java and spikey moss look the same to me either way !! It still looks great no matter the specific name
Yeah I've got a nerite. He's been doing well at keeping it off the glass more or less, I think the plant might be a bit difficult for him to get on. However I will be sure to do that thanks.Yeah that would help with the algae growth. Do you have any snails ? My nerites did a great job of munching it all off when I had an algae bloom in a new tank. Try the toothbrush in old tank water if not , just give a gentle scrub each water change and it should settle down eventually
Maybe try and get a leaf touching the glass if possible without too much re arranging. He will glide right on .Yeah I've got a nerite.
