Hello, I am fairly new to having a planted tank and I have become obsessed. I’m hoping to pick someone’s mind on lighting.  I have a 125 gallon aquarium with a Finnex+ 24/7 HLC 38w light. I have it on a timer from 8am to 8pm. I’m wondering if A. Is that enough light for my plants (Amazon swords, crypto, jungle Val, Anubis, etc)? And B. Do I put it on max mode all day or is it ok to have it go through the 24hr mode where it starts at a low sunrise, full spectum in afternoon, and then darken for night? My plants are not looking too great right now and I’m wondering if it’s lighting. I use eco complete, root tabs, potassium, and EZ green. Please enlighten me.
