My plants are not growing and havent been for god knows how long. I dont know why but they just dont grow. Does anyone have any suggestions to why this is happening?

Temp-80
P.H.- 6.4
Ammonia- 2.5
Nitrite- .05

If anyone can solve the answer to my question please let me know?

Thanks slim

What are your nitrates at? Phosphates? Do you have an iron supplement in the tank? What kind of lighting are you using? Do you have any CO2 generators in the tank?

First of all you have to describe in detail your setup and your plants (spieces).

With Amonia 2,5 i assume that you are currently cycling the tank am i right?

Whether you mean it to or not, your tank is still in the process of cycling. Perhaps this is because your filtration (assuming we are talking about the 125 in your sig) is entirely inadequate for the size of tank you are using.

This is an inadequate filtratrion system? What is a better one if a may ask?
