The 46g bowfront has 2 T-5 HO Bulbs (39 watts each) and 1 T-8 SO Bulb (30 watts). I dose Seachem Excel and EI dose. The rotala is growing but most of them are bending toward one side. Check out the pics. Please help!!!

the flow I guess is bending it - solution is simple - they respond very well to trims, so trim them short and replant the trims, make a bush with regular trims (refer to stem trimming techniques) once it become a bush, it'll have a better structural strength to stand erect. Hope it helps. the above holds true provided your light is good as others have already questioned you about.
