Javas and Light Level


 Re: Java Ferns and light levels

 I must agree with Eric on this one.  I keep Java Ferns in a 70G with 200W and
have never had a problem.  My Javas are enormous, and show only stronger
growth with good light and supplemental CO2.  I keep the same varieties in low
tech/low light tanks and they still do well, but the growth is now where near
as luxuriant.  I wonder if what you are seeing is a reaction to a CHANGE in
the light level?
