    I'm actually surprised how fast my Christmas moss has been growing to ! I started using excel flourish and micro nutrients with my diy co2 and everything is going nuts in the tank I'm loving it and my gouramis love all the hiding places !

    Hey man most recent ludwigia picture I right now have 6.7k and color max in. Kinda experimenting right now to see what combination works best

    Originally was a 6.7k and 10k. What do you think would work best. The bottoms of the plant leaves look amazing I just want the tops better.

    Any advice ?

    I'm not sure, not good with plants. Dolfan can help.

    I would go with 2 of the 6.7k bulbs. Be sure to replace your bulbs every 6-9 months for optimum results. Plants need time more then anything, results will be gradual. Be sure to use some root tabs and a liquid fert like Seachem Flourish Comprehensive. Ludwigia will get more pinkish red toward the tops as it gets closer to light. Iron from the root tabs and liquid ferts will help with red tones too.

    So really I'm just at a waiting game. Okay I'll probably ill go get another set of bulbs for it soon seeing as I started this all up in march ish. But I have shown the ferts I'm using along with root tabs

    This is not necessarily true. I know a few people with PAR meters and they have seen no difference in PAR levels in bulbs that are brand new compared to ones that are 2 and 3 years old. Just some FYI for everyone.
