    4000k hmmm... there's quite some debate about that. It's certainly not wrong. All depends on the exact spectrum output.

    Anyway, dkatsariotis, what can you get locally?

    Only 4000k for the type of lamp i use. I try to find a 7000k from Internatiolal stores.

    Localy i can find common lamps but i will have to do modifications in the lamp chassis and replace the balast.

    My experience is that anything from 3500k to 8000k works for plants. What works better depends on the exact spectrum and not that much the temperature.

    What fertilizers can you get in Greece? Profito is a decent general fert that contains almost everything plants need.

    Can you give me the correct spectrum output?

    I found Easy Life Profito in a local shop. I will order it on Monday.

    Can i use it with Tetra Floral Pride?

    No, use either the tetra stuff or the easy life and preferably the easy life.

    Dkatsarios, you got some things that need addressing first before worrying about lights. Your plants are new, to determnine if light is an issue you need another 6 weeks or so.
    What you do have is 3 fish that will outgrow your tank, the angles in 2-3 months, the pleco in 6 months. That needs action a lot sooner than the light.

    I noticed some "white cover" on the leaves. Could it be algae? Should I reduce the lighting. There is always sun light approaching the aquarium, not direct to it, during the day and I use a timmer to turn on the 4000k lamp for 8 hours at total in intervals of 3 * 1 hour during the day and 5 hours from 15:00 to 22:00 at night.

    I am posting some pictures taken today morning.

    I suspect you're overthinking matters. This is a very simple plant.

    As to the lighting. Why not 4 hours in the morning, say from 8 to 12 and then your 5 hours in the afternoon
