You can buy those hydropinc fixtures for very reasonable prices. They usually come with great reflectors, bulbs, and warranty's. Not too fancy to look at but not ugly either.

You need more light.

Glosso will grow well below a ph of 6 IME.

My 48g in my sig has a kh of 0 and ph down near 5 when the CO2 is on. No problems with fish, plants, or shrimp.

Added the Erio compressum and removed the ludwigia peruensis.
