Current USA Satellite + w/ red plants

I have a 10g, Eco complete substrate, Seachem flourish liquid & tabs, and the Current USA satellite LED + lights, no co2...

Do y'all think this is enough to keep ludwigia repens red? I bought a nice lil bundle that came to me super red... I would really like to keep it that way... Thoughts?

Glut is a liquid carbon source that will help your plants along while acting as a mild algaecide, it's similar to excel. Metricide 14 is the go to these days..

Glut is glutaraldehyde, and it's what's in Seachem Excel. It's a liquid carbon source. You can get it much cheaper as Metricide, like brooksie321 mentioned. The concentration is stronger, so you have to dose less, or dilute it some.

Ah I see, and it would be appropriate for my set up? I really don't want it to melt any of my other plants...
I have java ferns, java moss, ambulia, micro swords and anacharis
