    I have turned it down from the original setting a while back due to the darker reds, that is not what I'm after here. I want mid reds.

    The real problem was the huge increase in light, I just needed to ease them into the higher light and I really wasn't expecting such a big brightness difference between the nursery tank and this rank. An oversight on my part that hurt a few of the Cephs

    But it's also a test we all make mistakes an don't foresee all the problems that can be seen, other than the slight issue I think you are clearly onto a winner here though!

    C.f. "Big Boy" takes on really good colouration under intense lighting.

    Must agree with mobile. But that skin deep colour looks like a leather affect very cool

    An update from the bottom low light shelf. About 40 days

    Here is the oldest one under the blue/red LEDs. The blue/red ones are starting to put up pitchers, so I can finally see what color they will turn. From a "grower" prospective...I do not like the blue/reds...I can not tell if they need water, if they are dead or if they robbed a bank. So dark over there.

    Is that mildew on the growing medium surface?

    I'm not completely sure what it is, just that is not a good thing so it on my list to take care of this morning. I'll probably take the easy way out and just remove the top 1/8" of medium and replace it with fresh stuff.

    I've been running a small fan heater in that room and just turned it off last week so I'm guessing the reduced airflow gave it a foothold. Guess its time to add the fans into the rack.
