    I had to go with Micro, mine are doing well. On a side note I am very dissapointed with my melon swords they are not very red OR green, more of a mud brown

    more light means more red,especially if you have an iron rich substrate.

    Loved my Red Rubins when I had them. They were a great piece in my 125. Other than that I love Echinodorus uruguayensis, they are a beautiful plant.

    Micro (tennelus).

    The swords just seem too overbearing, to me.

    yeah, I have a feeling it is my substrate. I use a mix of gravel / flourite instead of pure flourite.

    Light shouldn't be a problem since I am running 3.4wpg while supplementing flourish, excel, and iron.
