  • Yellowing leaves, weak stems, and algae killing plant leaves. What should I dose?

    So I have had planted tanks in the past with no problem but I have only had headaches with my current tank. Its a 20 gallon with parameters as follows (PH ~ 7, Ammonia - 0, Nitrite- 0, Nitrate <5, Temp: 78 degrees).
    As of now I have problems with filamentous algae and slimy green algae that grows on plants and kills leaves. I also notice that over time lots of my leaves become a yellowish color and that the stems soften up and break. I think I have a macro nutrient problem in the aquarium. From these symptoms what should I dose in my aquarium to try and help remedy the problem, and what can I do to get rid of the existing algae? Ive tried to remove algae manually but it is near impossible to get off plants.

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out!

    Can you tell me if you are currently dosing any supplements to the tank?
