Good point Poe.

My point about using light levels as the limiting growth input is that it
should become much easier to control algae especially in tanks where you
have a lot of slow growing plants.

I have a tank filled with Crypts with a Madagascar Lace plant (A.
madagascariensis) which seems to have a high nitrogen demand. The tank is
way over lit with half the output of 2 35watt T-8s with excellent

How can I put less light into the tank without wasting electricity? Will the
MLP survive in lower light?

Did I mention that Nitrogen is the key to keeping lace plants from going
into dormancy?
