Still warming the tank up bud. Still 2° different is room to tank temp. This is after cleaning the impella out too.Excellent. Did you fix your heating filter?
Add extra (powder) soil over MC to cover the worst of the diatom damaged areas - obviously this doesn’t look as good at the front as substrate height increases - this seems to help isolate the affected MC (or maybe it just looks better )
Could I do option 3 which is a combo of what you both suggested.You could just trim the mc will look shocking but all the brown diatome bits will be gone and it will quickly get new growth
Fingers crossed mate. There's also the issue of holes appearing in the leaves of the Ludwigia Palustris, which I'm hoping the light will help resolve.Looking good, I’d imagine once all those fast growing stems starting growing in a lot of the algae will disappear. You should also start to see some good colouration from the stems with the new light. I have the same light and it brings my stems out in all sorts of oranges, reds and pinks.
Think this is going to look quality once it’s all grown in!
It takes some getting used to at first, when I first got mine I thought everything looked pink. Can’t even notice it now though.Fingers crossed mate. There's also the issue of holes appearing in the leaves of the Ludwigia Palustris, which I'm hoping the light will help resolve.
I can see a massive difference in red already with the new light. Even the wood has gone from a brown to a reddish browny colour. Lol
That's good to know bud. The most difficult thing with this game I've noticed is getting the balance right. Its hard to get it rightIt takes some ge

I have ludwigia sp red mini which is a variant of palustris I believe, grows with very good form and colouration. One with with ludwigia is the bottoms do get abit ratty so once you start seeing healthy new growth just discard of the bottoms. After a while you’ll have a fair sized healthy stand of it.
