Well... I just got the Ludwigia, I was referring to the swords & grasses I've had in there for a while, hehe. :)
They have been showing some new growth, but verrrrryyyyyy ssslllloooowwww. They have had a cpl of tiny spurts following root tabs being put in, but the only one that has been thriving is the one that gets light through the kitchen window in the morning at the east end of the tank.
This is the one I followed: How to retrofit your light for cheap
I couldn't find a double fixture like that at my Lowes so I just have 2 individual ones butted up in the middle.
I know I'm crazy I just couldn't decide what to do... till I saw retrofitting my existing plastic hood like this I knew it was what I wanted to do. Not to mention normal daylight CFLs are CHEAP!!!!
Oh, I will take some new pics tomorrow & tomorrow night!
