Still getting rid of BBA but it's coming along. I tore up the HC and decided I want to do nothing but dense planting with bigger plants (no carpet plant really). That being said, I still keep finding HC shooting up every once in a while. I put a stem of Ammannia Pedicellata "Golden" over on the right front to see how it would do should I get a bunch or two of this. Just watching it now and seeing what happens. Also, Rotala Rotundifolia needs a trim. I'll do that sometime soon. Waiting for more plants now, but figured I show the recent changes and progress.
Just wanted to share an experience with 2 Sat+ fixtures over my 40B. I took the spectrum to full white and red LED's only for about a week. Kept up with my dosing and even took reading every other day for nitrate and phosphates. All my plants faired pretty well and kept growing well with one exception. Rotala Rotundifolia stunted like nothing I'd seen before. Bottoms starting rotting out and new growth up top was small leaves and raggedy. I switched back to full spectrum today. I will report back with changes that occur.
I will try and trim it more often and keep the stem height to 2 inches or so. I dont know that my PAR will cut it though. My repens only gets that bright with large leaves at the surface :\ Looks beautify as a marginal plant though! LOL
