    Not to mention LFS's and websites that label many things wrong.

    Its going to get plenty of light..sunlight. When our summers roll around they are sunny days all the time in California. In the bay area what people don't know is we have more sun in summer than the southland..no summer storms ever block the sun. Its a fact the bay area has the driest summers in the country. Trivia,but fits in with why I use the lighting of that big window. Because of it,all I really need now is my 2 40 watt fluorescent bulbs during the day (brings out the fish colors),and a 30 watt LED in the morn and late afternoon about for two hours on the 240. If I went to all LED or Fluorescent? well,I know,you know how many watts needed and how many fixtures to grow plants all across an 8' tank.
    Just today I was thinking how to describe that window lights look on the plants. It shine right through the leaves!... I mean some leaves look like x-ray photos..backlit (from my perspective) you can see all the veins and cell shapes. The Ludwigia I do have? under that sun..its burgundy because the sun is showing the red undersides as well as the surface...early in the day and later,its green again above.
    Its what also has that Syngonium growing so well.
    What gets me? I search and have searched to find an aquarium and plant lover with a greenhouse or better..sunroom,who also uses the sunlight for all the real growing and the artificial lights to show off the colors in the morns and nights. I have yet to find that hobbyist.

    Ok,that plant I posted and couldn't ID? I now think its Nesaea triflora.The green,red and bit of gold..is the tricolor.
    Although..I can't confirm N. triflora is the latin name. Fish/plant horticulture is light years behind horticulture in general.
