Aside from shading, what are my options? I do regular dosing of ferts (~20ppm nitrates) and medium co2.

They clearly like the high light, sending out roots, turning a robust red and trying to grow laterally.

Heh. I've been pruning and replanting religiously. I have a nice, low rotala forest, but cant get them too high. Hoping the tiger lilly provides some shade in the future. Mine are rotala gia lai, mexicana araguia and colorata.

Mine grow straight to the surface. The trick for me was Direct even lighting. If any of my floating plants get in the way they start to bend & anywhere where the light is more intense the rotala grows in that direction

Once it reaches a height that it is satisfied with the light intensity, it will start to grow out.
