 Excellent  hues  of  red  on  BG  plants,  I  adore  them!
 
 The  reds  on  blyxa  are  normal,  caused  by  slight  Nitrogen  limitation(which  is  actually  desirable),  partly  the  same  reason  for  background  plants  to  have  strong  reds.
 
 Let  me  explain  this  in  a  deeper  sense...
 
 ADA  substrate  comes  packed  with  nitrogen  that  is  slowly  released  into  the  water  column  overtime,  readily  absorbed  by  fast  growing  plants.  Initially  the  substrate  supplies  more  than  required  levels  of  Nitrates,  hence  you  get  products  like  Brighty  K  step  1,2,3  with  potassium  and  iron(for  first  4-6  months)  and  no  additional  supplementation  for  N.  But  as  time  passes(say  like  6-12months)  and  depending  on  the  plant  stocking  the  N-levels  gradually  decrease  to  nil,  its  then  you'll  require  additional  N-dosing,  for  this  ADA  recommends  Brighty  special  lights  which  contains  N(and  P).
 
 I  am  coming  to  the  point  now...
 Obviously,  when  you  started  this  setup,  you  barely  had  such  saturated  hues  of  red  as  you've  got  now.  Even  the  red  plants  were  much  greener  then(if  you  can  compare  those  old  pictues  again)  because  more  nitrogen  was  available  to  plants.  Now  as  the  N  level  is  declining  with  time(I  suppose  you're  still  using  only  step  3)  you  see  the  intensity  of  red  increase.
 
 But  keep  some  nitrogen  supplement  handy,  as  when  it  goes  too  low,  the  plants  will  stunt  and  show  abnormal  growth.
 
 Acceptable  levels  of  N  for  a  densely  planted  tank
 5-20ppm
 desirable  levels  of  N  for  red  hues
 5-10ppm   
 
 I  hope  I  made  my  point  clear  .....
 
 And  I  dont  see  any  problem  with  HC  in  the  pictures,  its  compact  and  ground  hugging  as  it  is  supposed  to  be.  If  you  are  talking  about  the  rate  of  growth,  its  not  a  fast  grower,  but  steadily  covers  the  ground.  
 
 BTW,  have  you  upgraded  your  lighting  recently  after  the  rescape?

 Hi  all
 
 Thank  you  so  much.....  
 
 @Hamza  special  thanks  for  Special  Dose  of  Knowledge.
 
 @  Shelly  yes  it  is  growing  but  at  the  same  time  it  is  having  a  negative  effect  like  becoming  transparent  even  where  the  light  intensity  is  more.   
 I  will  try  to  take  a  zoom  snap  shot.
 
 Warm  Regards,
 Haneef  Khan.
