Noted and will take your offer into consideration. You live in Davis correct?

Well, the tank has only 1.8 w/gal and the light is about 16" over the top, it's the plant and good CO2 that is the main cause.

Some species/variants stay nice and red.......it's not much of a trick to have nice red plants. If other folks thought it is a typical Ludwigia repens...then they'd feel pretty bad....but it's not.

Amazing..You are a true master! I like how you fight the traditional ADA style. Not all successful planted tanks have to look ADA. Great tank

Tom, sweet tank, as always.

Quick question - what are you using for dosing trace, and how much?
