    Hi LauraLee,

    Hey I really appreciate the info you've been sending my way!

    So all my plants (of differing kinds) look kind of "burnt" not sure how to describe it. So I did all the tests you suggested and here's the results:

    ph = 8.3
    Ammonia = 0.25
    Nitrite = 0.05
    Nitrate = 60ppm

    not know which of these (if any of these) are making the plants look kind of "burnt" I did a partial 1/3 water change.

    just for added info, I have one 23w 6500K CFL and one 23w 5000K CFL both hanging 7inches above the water surface. The lights are on for about 9hours a day.

    Hope this is enough info for you to help me know what to change....

    Thanks again! Todd
