So I've been having some trouble with my doubletail's 2.5 gal. lately. It is planted with a small anubias and a small aponogeton, along with a Spathiphyllum tasson (Brazil Sword) and a Chlorophytum bichetii (Pongol sword) (both of which are not submerged aquatic plants, as I have just recently discovered).
After adding the last two, I have been having problems with algae building up, a problem I didn't have before. Also there is this brown scuzz that builds up on the leaves of the Spathiphyllum which I don't know what to make of. Anyone know what to make of all this?
Also, I might be re-planting my tank soon (without the false aquatic plants...thanks for nothing PetCo.) and I was wondering what plants I should substitute in. I gather that for a good naturally planted tank I need stem plants, preferably plants that stay small. I was thinking Lemon Bacopa, since it is a native plant, if I can find someone who sells it.... Any other suggestions?
