No, George, "the proof of the pudding is in the eating" and I have seen 8
years of proof of success on aquatic plants and corals.
The information given is from G.E. - Thorn, E.M.I. and Interpet; but what

about lighting and measuring Kelvin, Lux, Lumens, etc.?!?!!!!!!!
Guess "your batch" was "off color", etc.
