The star repens will grow slowly under those conditions. I have some in a shallower tank (12") with dual T5 normal output bulbs. They stay green and grow despite no ferts added to the water column. Even in optimal conditions they don't send runners; side shoots often appear after trimming them. When they get between 1-2" i trim and replant them.

Hmmmmmm I'm thinking about replacing the colormax for another floramax bulb, I can't really go back to full spectrum bulbs because they just don't make the colors of my fish pop, did a comparison and with the full spectrum bulb my red cherry shrimp didn't even look red lol, with the floramax it makes everything pop! Any idea on some powerful bulbs that help plants grow and make the colors of the fish and shrimp pop out?

Or maybe Leds? I just don't want to lose the colors in this tank, it's really a big difference.

A cool gourami would be maybe a pearl or opaline gourami, they're not too colorful but can be trained to eat from your hand have quite the personality! Or you could maybe do an angelfish, but I don't know if he would be compatible with the stock you already have!

I read that sometimes the swordtails might nip the angelfish and I think I may need a bigger tank for the angel
