Thanks for the input Tom. I have addressed the CO2 levels and increased flow around the tank. I'm starting to get a real grasp on growing plants in a high tech environment; it's only taken 5 years :D

Tom, I've read your article on EI a number of times. I understand the concept of providing ample nutrients, but to what point is it actually achieving this? I have a tank full of Hygrophila species...

Also, when you say a teaspoon and tablespoon, how many ml is that? I have a 3ml pipette, so can measure small(ish) quantities to a reasonable degree of accuracy.

Big help, thankyou. It describes the methylated spirits as "industrial", which after a quick google scan, means 5% of the overall alcohol content is methanol. How that effects things, I don't know.

Maybe try a 24" bulb? It's a more standard size, and will easily be long enough to prevent dark spots at the edges.
