The ludwigia Cuba has made a good transition. Snapped another picture today before a water change.
The bump in the lighting (2hrs at 150, 8 at 80ish) has led to some GDA and GSA on the glass, but nothing else bad so far. I'll keep rocking with just the 2 hrs burst for now.
As my journey in this hobby continues, I find myself wanting more out of my lighting overall. I feel the beamsworks were solid to get me started and are a good light to use to lean, however I think there is much left to be desired from a color perspective.
I keep coming back to the sun blaster nano- but do I want to change things up more than that? I suppose I could start with the sunblaster and a flora bulb paired with one of the beamsworks (probably the 6500K one) and see where that gets me.
My other though is a better quality LED with higher CRI and control, or dive I to T5HO 2 or 4 bulb unit.
Quite undecided- as I want to future proof for a 75 or 120 gallon even.
Would love any input or perspective on different fixtures (but not ones that run me grad...)
All of the cuba stems have transitioned, only some of the emerged leaves/stems left.
Pogo K, of course!
