View Full Version : lighting an issue?

01-15-2013, 05:59 PM
I recently started a new tank, i used some driftwood, and so i have alot of tannins in the water still, and the lighting appears to be quite dim, despite that all of my plants seem to be doing fine. Should i get some brighter lights? or just try to remove some of the tannins from the water? or is this not a problem at all? thanks.

Your plants seem fine and tannins are a temporary issue, I see no need for a solution..

Exactly, if your plants are fine and everything seems balanced, why would you make changes?

If you wish to remove some of the tannins, add carbon to your filter. They'll come back again when you stop using carbon, but not as much.
