    Hi,


    I currently have a moderately planted tank with the following lights:


    90 gallon


    CO2: with a .70 drop in PH


    BML LED light 10000k series


    Marineland plant led 48 inch


    Mounted about 12 inches off the tank under the hood


    Duration:


    BML: 6 hours (Reduced as I was getting Greenspot algae)


    Marineland: 8 hours


    Dosing: EI


    Could someone advise if my lighting is enough? The reason for my questions is I have not been getting the red colour in plants that I see on other members aquariums. Plants I notice this with is Sunset Hygro and red ludwigia. Looking to add Limnophila aromatica. Thanks for the advice.
