ive also had problems with it. lots of light but no co2 for both attempts. dosed tropica master grow for one. mine got some hair algae on it last time which seemed to smother it. id love to know some secrets to keeping this as well since it is one of my favorites and id like to have it in my current tank eventually.

Hi,

It is all cfl (6700K),it is about 8 months old now. I have been trying to grow RW
all the time, even when the lsmps were new, with no luck.

Essen
also, after about 6 months PC bulbs have lost quite a bit of their original output and Im pretty sure their spectrum has begun to shift significantly. this is just what i have heard from the Reef side of the eternal lighting debate but know there is some truth to it. Some of my clients who run PCs on their reefs dont swap lights that often and once they do, the change is HUGE in light output, so much so that some corals get shocked.

from the sounds of it, however, light might not be the only problem.
