If you are not currently running your fluvals to max, chances are very very very good that to get better reds you need to change your nutrients. (I am assuming you are running co2 already) Keep in mind that most of the super deep red plants you see online are either a) a specific species of plant, b) running lean on nutrients, and/or c) using post production filters to achieve the desired look.

Anyway you can just run an sbreeflight (or other lights) further from the tank to get more coverage.

In order to get plants red, you induce a nitrogen deficiency. I've never done it, just read a little bit about it. My understanding is that it can be a bit tricky. Dosing an all-in-one fertilizer will definitely not get you the same results.

Sorry, I don't have anything on the SB reeflight other than what's on their website.
