SO i have a bunch of fern that i bought from a lfs, im worried of putting it under too much light, b/c i fear it will get covered with algae and die off, is 2wpg too high??? right now its in a tank with that much light, but is being shaded by my water lettuce, should i leave it be?

2 wpg in a 55 gallon tank shouldn't be bright enough to harm java fern.

o, is java fern a slow grower too like bolbitis? b/c i can rarely even see it growing.

And somewhat off the topic, i have an anubias and everytime it forms new leaves, they come up lime-green and stunted, but the old leaves remain healthy and green and flawless. im confused why this happens, this sometimes happens to the fern too.

my java fern did great under medium lighting- about 3 wpg. The java fern was actually getting some pink coloration at the tips and grew to be too big for my 20 gal high!
