Purple t5s and MH be very purple. I have learned that from my reefing days. Getting red is more difficult, prob will have to go with an unknown brand. plants look good to me tho!

Well the experiment with the well water ended.... And nothing changed at all except it gave me green water algae... Which is still being battled.... Not sure if my UV is even on or what?..... lol.
So that's why some of the pics are a bit hazy.

Here's update pics and I'm getting a video ready:

Alright so i almost gassed all my fish today, 4 hours later 1 molly still recovering, everyone else is fine... One ember died.

So yea that's great. Gotta tune in the Co2 again, great luck before i move right? got 10 days until this baby comes down, then 12 hours later goes back up with different water params hope it makes it and the stuff inside it makes it, same for the fish. Wish me luck i need all of it.
Hopefully i can finish this scape pretty soon, within the next 3 months I'm goaling for. Cause i want to move on and do a large scale iwagumi. I am losing interest so to speak in this tank, not the styles "fault" but its because ive been doing it for so long it feels like a chore almost...

Here are update pics, again 10 days before i move this guy:

im planning to trim the rotala differently and move it slightly to the right so it bends rightwards and covers the hydros side, cause rn the hydro is wide open in view creates no depth. Added 1 stem of L. rubin going to mix it maybe with the glandulosa or replace it eventually, most likely mix it though.
