It's a good price too. I leave my lights on too much so need the timer to restrict me :rofl:
My dimmer/timer switch arrived today. Just wondered what schedule you have yours running?

At the moment it's set to come on at 80% from 8am till midday, then off till 4pm, when it comes on at 80% rising to 100% from 5pm till 9pm.
So 4 hours at 100% and 5 hours at 80%.

I've just today started adding seachem flourish comprehensive as well. My hygrophilia and limnophila are growing out rather than up, I wonder if this is due to lack of nutrients or light that is too intense?

I had mine set at 50% from 9am to 7pm. And a 15 min lead in/out. So gradual increase to 50%. So 10 hours at 50%.

Really, as low as 50%? Is that your ciano 60 tank? How is your plant growth, any algae?

Thanks
