Kalita Posted April 26, 2021 Share Posted April 26, 2021 (edited) Hoping I can get some advice for getting Scarlet Temple to redden up. I know it's considered a finicky plant by many and I can see why. When I first added it and during the weeks after, it was doing super well - sending out roots, showing nice colour, new growth (see photo), however now, it has become more brown colour, not growing as much. Some changes happened brown-algae phase in which it could have suffered from added more light (a second Nicrew SkyLED Plus) added more plants added more fish (6 endlers and 3 guppies) added more root tabs & dosing EZ green trimming Parameters: Temp = 77 +/- 1 pH = ~7.4 Ammonia = 0 Nitrite = 0 Nitrates = 10 -15 ish Hardness measured at Petsmart, and all they told me was it was mid range (suggestions for good hardness test kit?) I don't do CO2 so I'm sure that could be part of the reason, but there is good surface agitation (2 HOBs and 2 sponge filters).
