Thrive +

Using nilocg thrive+ on my tank and following dosing instructions. I dose MWF and 50% wc on Sunday. Tank is 45 gallons and I dose 5 pumps. I have some red plants in there and was wondering if the iron in thrive+ is enough to keep my plants red? Are there other factors I should be considering? My tank is at 4gh and 2-3kh (couldn't really see the difference when I used API to test) I'm not dosing Gh boosters. My tank is about 70/30 RODI/tap.

This is a good video on red plants. I highly recommend watching the entire thing to get the most out of your red plants.

What are the red plants?
Do you know the PAR of your lighting?

Is this red enough?
