Pearling with ODNO shoplight
Have val (various types), narrow leaf chain grass, rotilia indica, baby tears, westeria and a mistery weed (Hygrophila polysperma?) - nothing difficult.
The last two pictures is with ODNO - but under exposed it to get better color rendition. It was pretty much as bright as the metal halide.
The first pic was right after I got the sun (my metal halide pendant) back up - premature bulb failure. Well I am now with a 3 month old tank that has eaten 2 hqi bulbs (second bulb failed Saturday). Last night put two shop lights over it, will take one last picture and move on to alternative lighting - goodbye mad plant growth.
I do not have any more recent pics - after the sun went down. I continued to get great growth with alternative lighting (odno), but some algae is back. Have done quite a few major prunings. When I get it sculpted better will post again. Sun is back up again.
Chain swords were getting out of hand, so I thinned them in hope of getting them to grow shorter rather than compeat for light. Also trimmed back the baby tears in hope to once again make it a foreground plant. Have been systematically thinning the westeria - and wow, found my amazon sword has really taken off. Tank does have a new bulb, the the color is user error with the camera - will try to replace this picture tomorrow with better color rendering.
