well, it finally happened.
my 20gallon long set-up with twin-tube shop light fixture pumping 80watts has been made dated.
i now have 33gallon breeder which is the same length as a 55gallon but shorter so the light is closer to my plants with satelite coral fixture with two compact flo. lights pumping 65watts each at 10000/7000 while decked with lunar lighting to impersonate the moon. decking the sides out in reflective materials and making a removable front piece so that the light can bounce around the terrarium while i am at work and be taken off when i come home.
not only do i have double the space but the coloring in some of plants have gone somewhat, out of control.
my n. x 'judith finn' is displaying brutal color with a peristome so purple that it's black while my n. hamata is looking more and more like that purple clone and my n. mikei is living up to it's colorful name with purple leaves and black pitchers and flamboyant throats.
should this occur? especially with my n. x 'judith finn'. i have never seen such coloring in one before and this happened almost overnight.
i will be posting pictures of my new set-up along with plant pictures soon. but now, i must go be a live nursery specialist at lowe's.
