Yea.......was feared of that one, GB. I know they like a bit more light than I have. I think I will have to bit the bullet and get me a better light for that tank and leave the 130 watt for just low light plants.

Great info! Thats my favorite method, I love turning ludwigia, hygro, wisteria,etc into bushesAs I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

What I wish for...........a couple click on lights that will give me just a bit more lights without going overboard with expense. I see the little clip-ons but they offer up very little in wattage and probably not very useful for what I need of them.

wattage isn't as important as PAR Hobbs. As long as the lights provide enough Photosyntheticly Available Radiation you're fine.

Ive got some experience in hydroponics, this is the same method you would use for thickening above water plants. But what about the clones? Will they just grow a root if you leave them in the water? In hydro we had to cut the stem under water (obviously not a problem) at a slant and then put it into a chemical to make it grow roots. How would you do it for aquatic plants?

Mine have always simply rooted again when placed back in the substrate. Stem plant propogation is almost always done by clippings like that.
