  • Planted Tank

    I have a 60 gallon planted freshwater low tech aquarium with gravel substrate. The tank is 8 months old and I do 10% water changes weekly. I use coral in a bag in the filter and have a large Texas Holey rock. I suspected I was having ph crashes a few months ago. I have two angel, 1 German Ram, 6 neon tetras, 8 pistella tetras, 2 panda Garra. I have driftwood. I 6 Anubius Frazeri and 4 wisteria. Fluval Aquasky is the light. Light is on 7 hours a day. I have two problems I am trying to solve:
    1. Plant leaves are turning yellow and brown.
    2. German Rams dying
    I’m dosing with Flourish once a week. I use Seachem root tabs and replace every 30 days. I dose Excel every other day. I add Seachem Porassium and Iron every once in awhile.
    the tanks numbers:
    GH: over 15 dgh
    GH from tap: 5 dgh
    KH: 4 dgh
    KH from tap: 2 dgh
    PH: 7.6
    PH from tap: 7.0.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
