Is the light you are using satisfactory to you? Do you like the way the plants and fish look under this light? Is it as bright as you would like?

Do you have algae? It is, after all, an aquatic environment, and you are bound to see some algae if you are looking for it. But do you have nuisance algae? Judging from your photo, the Anubias appears to be alga-free. Very often it is on the slow-growing Anubias plants where unsightly algae tend to show up.

If you like your light and you are managing the algae, that is a very good place to be. I would not then be quite so concerned that your CO2 is not as high as it might. It is well-balanced.

So about the original problem with the apparent chlorosis. Is the yellowing worse, better, the same?
