How old is the MH?

Did you change anything else when you switched lights? Increase ferts or CO2?

My R. wallichii does well as long as I give it lots of CO2 and micronutes.

Have there not been any more recent publications? It seems likely there have been new introductions to the hobby since 2008?

Sell them as culls and post a representative pic of what you are selling. It is always nice to be able to test run your set up with a cheaper grade.

10% bleach solutions and 10 minutes of waiting are pretty standard for sterilizing things. You could easily do a rinse of your tank with that, just make sure to flush it afterwards with lots of water.
