I've let the tank go for the past 1.5 weeks or so cause my CO2 ran out and I ended up having to get a new tank, which I was unable to do until yesterday. During this time, I reduced my lighting to two bulbs and reduced/stopped dosing. Interestingly the R. mini is starting to recover somewhat, though the R. magenta is gone.

Here is the most recent growth. The leaves are about 3/4 the length of the old ones, though they are only around half as wide.They seem to be a bit curled up at the sides. The color is not quite as intense as it could be. For comparison here are some of the old leaves from when I got the plant.

I currently have CO2 at 3bps and the fish seem to be doing okay so far (introduced them yesterday) and currently have 3 bulbs, w/ two of them resting above the center hinge of the cover (padded by some dark plastic) so the light is reduced somewhat. Should I stay with the 3 bulbs, or should I go back to two?
