The red Nesaea is adjusting to submersed life well now. I'll see how long that lasts. I am going to need to chop this up to get rid of the old growth and hopefully make it look better soon. Just waiting on some roots to show under the new shoots and for the shoots to grow longer.




Ludwigia glandulosa showing more color and good growth. I will need to chop this up to remove old growth soon also.

I just bumped the period to 9 hours a week ago. I have an older UVL actinic white which produces a good pink color so I might swap out with a pink bulb for the Aquablue. I do get algae on the glass but it isn't much of a problem. I am still working on fert balance. I had a 260W PC fixture on the tank before and had awesome colors. I changed out due to the cost of changing bulbs twice a year and hoping for some energy savings. I also used to change about 1/3 of the water each week with tap and just used the NO3 and PO4 from it. It just was too inconsistent on the values though to deal with T5HO so I have gone to rodi and adding gh booster. I am aiming to have my NO3 and PO4 go to 0 by the end of the week as I had with the tap water or something akin to it.

Decided to replace the old 6500k bulb in the middle with an ATI Aquablue Special. Red coloration and growth have improved greatly since the old bulbs were replaced.

I agree looks like the leaves from when I had it before. Just never did from day one. Go figure. I like the looks of the colors now so maybe it will head close to what it should look like. It grows weird too. When I had it before, no new growth from the stem. This one goes crazy with growth comparatively.
