Planted Tank Enthusiast

I have a low light tank. I have just increased my wattage so that may help me a bit (see sig). I wanted to add plants with color (red, pink, ect...) Are most plants color dependent on the light in the tank? Or could they need a different nutrient? Does iron help to color up plants. I have just ordered it. Since I am using Seachem for now I was not sure if playing with the doses would effect the color in most stem plants.

Yes, light plus iron does tend to be needed to bring out the reds in plants. You'll probably need CO2 if you want to see them in their full glory, but some plants will redden up even without.
