First, take a look at your parameters. Are your nitrates too high or too low? Also, what are your phosphates readings (or, do you know if your water is high in phosphates)? If you're running CO2, approximately how many ppms do you have? What is your fert routine like?

Nitrate are zero but the phosphate is extremely high in my fish tank. I provide 15ml of Seachem Iron and 15ml Trace elements 2x week in 400l or 105.8G water in my fish tank(4x2x2 feet). 1 bubble/sec of CO2 and 12 hours of light. There are two aquaone light with a pair of florscent light per light. The fish tank loaded with high number of fishes.
