First post in a long long time. Poor tank was overrun with algae after not enough water changes and proper maintenance. Plants did not hold up so well over the last year.

Need to buy new Coralife bulbs (Aged bulbs don't provide enough light for healthy plant growth). Added new bag of Eco-Complete substrate to help the new plants added to the tank. Still need to even the substrate out and do some more elbow cleaning to remove the encrusted algae on the back left side of the tank. The plant on the left side is covered with algae and only left in place to keep the fish happy until I can replace it with newer plants.
