Can you post a pic of your plants? Or do you know the name of them. Some LPS sell crappy plants that no matter what you do will just fall apart. I personally don't use co2 ( haven't got that far yet) but I do use dino pee, dino spit and dino dung and I have great success with plant growth without co2. The dino dung is a good substrate fert, I would definatly get that and the spit as well. Good luck

Hi Matty.

Pics would Help...

There are lots of plants sold in Fish shops that were never meant to be permanently submersed....they will die

You need to get the right plants....Java moss,java ferns,anubias and crypts are all pretty hardy low light plants....no need for co2

If you have the right plants they will use the nutrients and starve the algae.....if it is still a problem there are a number of fish that will eat algae....mollies,florida flags are 2 that spring to mind.
