Ah...the leaves will remain floating then (presumably). I have T8 lighting, all but one fixture has been renewed with a new "shop light" insert, but even these in T8 are getting scarce here.The floating plants are only artificial maple leaves. Im using these to cover the spray bar from view and to give a bit more security for the fish.
Lotus is growing really well, ive got 4 leaves floating now
Believe it or not my lighting is good old T8's. Ive just replaced the blasts and starters so they should last a good while longer now.
