re: dying Java ferns

I have a strand of java fern windolev that was wallowing for several
months.  My tank is occasionally co2 fed (soda water), dosed with
whatever I feel like adding and it gets around 12 hours a day of light.
It was half green and half black - it just never looked good.

The I changed out my newer 38 watt CF bulb (5800k?) with a year and a
half old 55 watt CF bulb (6700k) and it perked right up.  Looks great.

It was the only thing I really changed.  Ambient light was fairly
constant.  The city water supply could have changed but I never test
anything so I wouldn't know.

My $0.02, Chris
