    Changed to new tubes as well. The colours and the light intensity is much better now

    Thanks guys

    my usual mix is skywhites and aquastars. but they didnt have any skywhites so i was using 6x aquastars thinking they would have skywhites soon. but they havent ordered in months. my plants were showing signs of low light so i ordered some reeftech 10k tubes x2 and a 6k tube.. cant rem the brand..

    but now it gives the best colour and light intensity that i have ever had so far..

    Sorry haha only read the top part now.
    I have a 1.2m x 45x 50
    With oddysea quad and 2 x 6500k daylight and 2 x gro-Lux about 10cm from the water surface running for about 6 hours a day and have CO2 with 2bps and dosing NPK and trace.

    My glosso and Monte Carlo aren't taking off as I would hope and my ludwigia I would like a bit redder what would u advise?

    Thanks very much

    what you have described to me is low light issues.

    you have 2 major issues here that i can identify:
    1. oddysea units are very crap(just being honest).. better if you modify them to have alanod reflectors.
    2. day light and grow lux.. 2 tubes that i absolutely dislike.. i have seen time and time again. people have low light issues with this combo. not saying that they completely useless but you shouldnt solely use them. try 2x10k lamps and one grolux and one day light. better yet, just try 4x10k. you will see the difference.

    guys, its simple, proper lights +CO2+proper substrate+plants = great growth.

    if you see that your plants are struggling to grow/ they not turning as red/ they growing slow.. usually a light issue
