according to my experience ..newly planted flora ..some leaves melt before new growth... or it maybe lack of macro nutrients ...like potassium.

thats normal with ferns.growing points of new leaves are translucent.
but anubius in my tank too sometimes show that kind of stuff .let it root and settle and then you will find it disappear.

The light is from Buro da's shop. No cost yet as this is a defective one. Will get a fresh one in future and then can let you know the price.
Co2 - > baking soda + citric acid
No shrimp yet
Thanks,

I remember seeing these lights in aliexpress for 700-800 rs but was doubtful if they are useful for planted tanks. Will closely follow this thread to see how it works for you :)

I too have some doubts, As it looks good I have added this but thinking of adding some additional light.

I can see some brown algae in the tank. Its on anubias leave and fern leave.

I am dosing micro and macro nutrients 6 days in a week alternate days. CO2 2bps. The led has some blue led and most of them are white.

What can be the issue with the algae?
Thanks,

By brown algae you mean diatoms? If yes, they are normal in a newly setup tank. Keep up with your water changes and try to get a pair of ottocinclus, they'll wipe them clean :)

A picture would help better address this by the way.

diatoms are very much normal in new setup.and water changes will clear it away.

Thanks both of you. I searched for diatoms and found that I have that only in my tank. I will keep on changing the water 40% weekly.
