 I  have  this  bee  in  my  bonnet  which  has  been  buzzing  into  my  ear  that  in  a  high  lighted  planted  aquarium,  when  all  the  colour  bands  are  present  in  high  intensity,  each  of  the  plant  specie  will  be  satiated  with  energy  by  absorbing  their  favourite  colour  band,  by  producing  the  pigments  to  do  so  and  thus  being  compelled  to  show  their  most  colourful  self.
 
 So  after  more  than  a  month  of  neglect  while  I  corrected  the  lights  and  renewed  all  the  wiring  and  CO2  supply;  I  have  severely  pruned  away  the  rank  growth,  and  done  a  water  change.  
 
 The  size  of  the  tank  is  –  72”  –  36”  –  24”  high
 The  lights  are  3  X  150W  10000K  MH,  +  2  X  150W  3000K  MH,  +  3  X  40W  6500K  T8,  +  2  X  40W  “Azoo  Tripower”  (magenta  coloured)  T8
 
 I  am  a  bad  photographer  the  attachment  has  been  resized  but  I  have  not  played  with  the  colours.

 It  is  very  bright  and  plants  are  showing  different  colour  contours  certainly.  I  wish  I  could  afford  such  lighting  in  any  of  my  tanks.  Will  wait  for  updates  from  your  end.

 As  the  picture  I  posted  last  week  did  not  match  what  actually  hits  the  eye;  this  week  I  did  some  colour  corrections  with  Irfan.  I  also  came  closer  both  to  the  visible  colour  and  the  aquarium  so  you  have  split  pictures  of  the  left  and  right.

 I  just  request  them  to  stay  away  from  this  tank  and  look  up  your  tanks.
 
 Seriously  -  light  alone  is  not  the  invitation  to  alga.  I  have  used  direct  sunlight  for  40  years,  and  except  for  the  last  3/4  years,  without  CO2  and  except  for  GSA  had  little  to  no  problem  with  algae,  and  that  to  only  with  new  setups.

 Its  about  2  weeks  since  the  experiment  started  and  the  new  growth  does  show  more  'redish'  colouration  at  depths  I  have  never  seen  before  in  my  long  career  in  this  hobby.

 Nice.  Are  the  cabombas  a  new  addition  ?  they  look  a  bit  leggy  which  shouldnt  be  the  case  with  this  tank  !  I  would  also  suggest  grouping  them  a  bit  more  tightly  and  giving  them  a  trim.  They  should  look  great  after  that.
 
 Do  you  have  any  plans  for  a  foreground  ?

 The  entire  bare  foreground  is  the  tank  filter,  an  UGF,  which  gets  vacuumed  every  week.
