dosing what will bring out reds?

i know higher light will bring out certain red plants, but what do those red plants need in order to obtain redness? or, are they all very different? i.e. red rotalas prefer something different than red ludwigias??

In general, lean on nitrates and lots of iron in my experience.

Ditto. Just enough nitrates for growth and iron. I use Flourish Iron.

just watch out for algae. More light & iron will trigger all kinds of stuff.
