I have a 35 tall tank that has been established for about 4 months. I have 3 20W full spectrum bulbs (60W total). There is a 4" bed of Flourite. I also have a pH controlled CO2 injector system (overkill, I know. but why not?) and Tunze undergravel heating coils rated for 30-50 gallon aquariums. I dose with Kent Blackwater Expert and Tropica Master Grow. As you can tell, I love plants. But they don't love me. Parameters are as follows:
temp~77
ph~6.8
CO2~20mg/L
NO2=10ppm

The plants lack color and growth. Any suggestions?

Out of curiosity, why are you adding blackwater conditioner with a pH controlled CO2 system?

With good nutrients, that should be plenty of light, but your tank is tall. How tall exactly is a 35 tall?

the 35 is 22 inches tall I believe. I've always added blackwater expert on my old tanks without a CO2 system and had great results. old habits die hard i guess :)
