Can the light I bought be too bright for the live plants?
I'm wondering about my 3 gallon nano tank. Three light that came with the tank was crap so I bought a new one. It's a few centimeters too big, but it's bright as heck!! Half the time my betta boy Frankie hides under the plants because I know he's bothered by the light because he didn't start hiding until after I bought it. The plants I bought are hardy! And I can't believe the one that's dying is the Anubis! It's slowly turning yellow. But the roots are growing great! I have Fluval substrate, Stratum. I leave the light on same as all the others, about ten hours every day, maybe twelve. It's perfect for the other tanks but this light is bright and I'm wondering if it could be killing the plants to have such bright light. Today I cut the light early to see if there's any improvement in a few days, but if that's not it, I don't want to restrict the light of the plants need it. Ugh. What do you guys think?
