I have had my tank set-up for 4 months now, and have had acros in it for 2. But my acros are quite dull brown colours, one of them is getting a slight green tinge, but nothin compared to the stuff i see on your acros. The lighting i have over the tank is an arcadia series 3 single metal halide 250 watt
It is the 14,000 kelvin ones, double ended. The lighting unit has also got two 18 watt actinics in it.
Do you think this is the right kind of lighting for my acros to colour up. Oh and yeah my tank is 75 cm, 28 inches or 2 foot deep, with the acros in the middle of this depth?
How long does it take for them to colour up from when you get them home from the LFS
All help appreciated,
