    Ok i set up my hc a few days ago and yesterday i halved the lighting to 200w in a 5ft tank. I also fertlized it a fair bit with a 1:4 watered down generic plant food. 95% of my growth as went from bright green to dark green/brown.
    I have noticed ive lost maybe 2cm of water and my take had no condensiton on the inside. Tank has 1 inch gaps in lids at either end.

    so I have covered up thease gaps turned back up lighting watered plants heavely. Now my watter has little pools again in low spots. Any other ideas?

    Did you use ADA AS?
    Do not use generic plant food, it often has NH4 in it and will kill the leaves.

    Just use ADA/soil etc and saturate with water.
    I do not suggest to spray the plants.
