Re: [APD] Improving red in narrow leaf ludwegia


I wish the best of luck to you on your first entry into the AGA Aquascaping
Contest. Regardless of the outcome, the process of preparing a tank for the
contest will improve your aquascaping skills.

Limiting nitrates below your current levels will turn the plant red. Keep a
close eye on things because this "trick" can have an adverse effect on the
other plants.

Hi all, I have a tank that I am planning on entering
in the AGA contest- this will be my first time
entering . . . Testing shows my Nitrates to run
between 5 and 10 ppm . . . I cannot seem to get more than a slight tinge
around the edges of my ludwegia . . . and the ludwegia (which is
under the same light, the double T5 in the middle of
the tank) is about 1.5 inches per week. . . . but if it 
is something else I would love
to know how to improve the color.
Thanks for any advice.
