You should dose in the mornings, I've read that most liquid carbon is consumed within 24 hours and isn't really used when the lights are off so in the am would be better. Just a suggestion for red plants, I really like Myrio red and cabomba furcata(red cabomba). River cats has red tiger lotus and I love the color but not the actual plant haha

Red tiger lotus are really pretty IF you know how to keep them trimmed so they stay low, full, and with big leaves... lol! I like my Cabomba Furcata but my very favorite non-green plants is Limnophila aromatica 'hippuroides'.

And yes, Zim is right about dosing in the morning.
