Thanks. Not a problem, ask away. We are all here because we have something new to learn everyday don't we? : )

Here is what I observed. Surprisingly, during the emersed growth those HC's that grew closest to the middle (low light) grow best in terms of horizontal growth. For some reason the ones very close to the light grew vertical. Now I am not sure if this will remain true when the tank is filled but we will see. You can subscribe to this thread for updates
