I have been trying the Walsted method and it has not worked for me. I am on my 3rd group of plants.

Plants are Hornwort, Rotala Indica, Carolina Fanwort, Crypt balance, Wisteria, Hygro Sunset, Tonia,
Bacopa Carolina, and Java Fern.

Lighting was 3-20 watt bulbs over a 29 gallon tank. I have switched to 1-20 watt daylight bulb and 1-65 watt dual 6700k,10000k daylight bulb.

I have found that the problem is the lights don't give off the proper colors for the plants to grow properly thus have to add potassium sulfate, calcium sulfate, and flourish excel.

I would like to know more about your light system? Did you buy it as is, or make it?

So you made the light fixture? You are talking about the screw in bulbs?
