I´ve been adding lights and the plants are getting healthier. Some plant´s leaves seem to dye pretty quickly though, I´m getting better tubes now, just got a sylvania gro-lux, have 2 philips aquarelle and one Narva full spectrum.

Very nice looking tank Sven...
The plants do not appear to be lacking light in these photos but they also are mostly low-med light demanding plants... maybe its nutrients they are lacking rather then light. What are you dosing for ferts?

Nice job tho... keep up the good work !

Rams are generally wery prone to diseases, especially ich.

And selvfølgelig i understand that you use tropica plants. They are allways "tip-top"
