As I posted in another thread, I received some plant cuttings recently... I love how they look in my tank but I know precious little about plants, and I am finding most of the planted tank info online somewhat confusing.
Anyhow, I currently have them in gravel (no soil), with a fluorescent light and no fertilizer. However, I have been noticing lately that the color seems a little... off. Even my moss ball has a yellowish tinge to it!
Not that they all haven't been growing - they definitely have. I've had to trim the rotala already! But in the pic, I'm pretty sure you can tell what has grown since they've been in my tank... :/
I'm pretty sure these plants are getting more than enough light (3500K, 9W fluorescent bulb, around 10 hours a day) so I'm thinking perhaps they need some kind of fertilizer. What would be your take on this? (Yes/no, what kind, how much, etc...)
Or perhaps my problem is something else entirely!
I would very much appreciate any words of wisdom! :)
