How come the UG looks a little yellow-ish?
I wondered this also.
So I looked at the side view, it's not as yellow, and then looked at the older pics, also not as yellow.
The underside of the leaves reflects yellow better than the top.
When UG is growing in, it tends to grow more vertical, and once it fills in it starts to layer and the grain bends the leaves over, much like "fur", this side is deeper green. I looked at some replantings in the past, and this was the case again.
There's some dust from replanting other species the last couple fo weeks, I've replanted about 6-8 times and gotten the dust on a lot of the plants lately, fluffing can remove some of it. I could photoshop it, but I refrain from doing much of that, I'd rather just show as is. I could also switch to a more blue/green color bulb in the front. Most of those blue bulbs are in the rear, while reds are in the front, and then whites in the middle.
Red reflects out the front, white blends, the blue gives the deep blue look of the water in the rear.
In maybe 2-4 weeks, the UG will thicken up and start laying on top of itself like here:
You'll note, it's sort of yellow here.
Also, no fish or shrimp really, so the leaves are not picked cleaner like prior.
Could be one or all of these things.
I'll be picking up about 120 Amano shrimp next week and maybe some fish.
