Okay, I will order one and see how it looks. Then if I have to, I'll order another.

I'm gonna have to up my light and Fe or something, I just got some M. sp 'Japan Red' and it's quickly turning green, I'm not sure if it's just getting adjusted or if I'm lacking something.

But it's 20 inches away from 514 watts and getting 30 ml of Fe daily.

Looking for ideas for another school of 20 fish in addition to this one.... One with less color. Something that stands out from the reds and other colors.

Any ideas?

What is the far right plant in front of the aromatica? Is it Macrandra? What about the 2 stems next to it? Is that glandulosa?

Do threadfin's school? Maybe I could give them a shot...

Thanks for the compliment but I wouldn't go that far...

So far things seem to still be working good. I am happy about that! Should I push the envelope and add the other 2 bulbs and make it 6x54watt bulbs????

You got it! The mac red is a bit butchered from a trim. It's mostly bottoms. I am actually going to be pulling them and replanting the tops that are there.

I was comparing yours to mine (huh?) I consider mine the lower end of high light. Yours is high light I would guess by the growth youre getting on these. I would be more inclined to go lower on the ferts than higher on the lights. Or do both. Have you considered lengthening your photoperiod?
