    Well, i never had so good reds in my tank until i started to use a 4000 kelvins bulb. That is a point.
    But i´m gonna say something else.

    One thing else.. I never had saw to.. in a real tank... this reds performed by PHOTOS! Sorry but i´ve seen to many tanks and never have the luck to see these kind of reds alive. The photos bring a colour that in real life i never saw.. not even in any store here in Portugal. Not a single one!
    I´m trying to get it.. but a normal red is quite diferrent to what these photos show us..

    Hi Paulo
    In this part of the forum, I'm actually allowed to comment on Tropica-related issues - so in this case, I will.
    I agree, that a lot of heavily photo-shopped pic.s are around - even in respected contests, I'm sad to say.
    To make general/all-covering conclusions on the fact, that YOU have never seen good red plants in a public displayed tank.....is really not serious, my friend - not to mention fair.
    Tropica go on exibitions/expo's/general shows quite often, displayingin-grown tanks (usually grown in for 3 months at Tropica, and then moved to specific exibition). This we do for exactly the reason, you mention ; it's too easy to manipulaye pictures.
    We realize, that seing is believing............and InterZoo in Nurenberg every second year, is our biggest "window-decoration". A lot of costrs have come to believe us after visiting and see

    A lot of costumets have come to believe us, after visiting and see the aquariums in real life. It's a matter of credability.........

    I live In Portugal my friend... and unfortunately we do not have any kind of exibitions/expo's/general shows from the hobby. Just a few stores that sometimes i doubt of their knowledge for themselves ..
    It´s sad but true.
    And my opinion is one from a guy ( myself..) who´s been working to progress in the hobby for a few years now, and only now i´m seeing some results. At list one´s i consider to be respectable.
    But those reds in the pictures? Since day one i never believed it. I got reds in my tank. But not like the photos we usually see around the web.. that´s what i intend to say.
    I do believe in what you say about the reds you got. But hey.. you´re the ones who´s a manufacturing and have all kinds of equipment.. and do all kind of tests etc. not a regular aquaristic.

    Kindest regards,

    Thx. for the kind words, Paulo - I'm glad we actually agree.
    Tests are part of my job, and I do ofcourse use equipment to document measures and observations.
    I have 40+ years in this hobby........and honestly this is what bring the results, far more than any equipment.
    There is just no substitute for experience...........

    No doubt of that my friend.. i learn more from a careless and accurate atention to my tank then anything else. I used to say that the tanks talk with us! :)
    Most of the times we are not paying attention to what is saying ;)
