Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V3 #1302

Hello All,

Does anyone know of a good way to retrofit the lighting on the eclipse 
system?  If not, do I scrap it and start fresh?  (What I'm leaning towards.) 
  I'd appreciate any help.  The lighting in the tank is putrid although the 
plants are thriving.  The  higher light requiring plants just tend to rot or 
melt.  So I figured that the lighting was pretty poor.  I'm leaning towards 
two 55 PC's and two 40 watt fluorescents.  What kelvin bulbs would be best 
for the PC and fluorescent bulbs.  This is for a 55 gallon discus tank.  Any 

Also, does anyone know what's in Flourish water additive?  I'd like to know 
what else I need to add as far as trace elements go.  I figure chelated 
iron, but am not sure what else I'd need.  Also, how do you prevent the PMDD 
from forming what looks like a sludge or bacterial growth?
