Showing off a bit..sort of

well a couple of weeks ago I inadvertently cooked one of my 10k pots that I used to dim one of my 2 main "color" channels and had to gang the blue/red together. I've been driving my disco lights on full since and today noticed how red one of my red flame leaves has become.. Almost all pink and red w/ little green. On the negative side I have some other red species not so colorful though I'm blaming nitrate levels and tank placement on that one.

Photo was shot w/ r/b off and just the 3500k circuit lit. Then color balanced for white using the grey of the heater as a reference.. so no trick photography ..
Actually in daylight it looks even better..

Oddly enough my weed plant, water wysteria, has shut down it's rapid growth for some reason. Before I would prune almost weekly but now, little new growth. The other hygophila sp. (compacta) is doing fine..
