I dont want the plants bent over but I like watching the leaves move. Otherwise, it is kind of boring to look at lol.

I guess you already have pretty good water movement with 2 filters and a powerhead though

Jealous on how you're s. repens is carpeting lol..

whats your lighting? PAR? sure ferts./ dosing of iron is what red plants need, but intense light keeps the red plants 'sunburned' if that makes any sense to yuh!

Update please.

Enjoying the black substrate opposed to the white pool sand.

I am using a Nova Extreme 2xT5HO 78W. I'm not sure what the PAR rating is. For my understanding it put me in medium - high range. The reflectors aren't the best. I am already adding extra iron but I think it need extra lighting for to red to come out. Maybe a Finnex Ray 2.

Nice looking tank! I know you mention dosing iron, are you dosing anything else? I would think you'd wanna be dosing a full ei regime.
Great to. See another tank in the cola area!

Thanks. I am dosing a full EI regime. It's good knowing there is other in the area. Not to many good stores with a plant selection.
