Yes and the Tenellus actually turning red because of the light, Micranthemum
umbrosum, Hydrocotyle leucocephala (growing so much it did shadow to much on
the tenellus), Echinodorus schlueteri, and others.

Plenty of proof that you do not need at least 2 watt/gal, most people would
only get a huge amount of algaes with that much light, and you also must
have co2.

Robert you really should try a low light tank once.

With many Thanks
