Jai, do you supplement with CO2? Is that an led hood? Looks good
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

It's just a regular hood with fluorescent bulbs that I got from a local fish store. I don't even know what kind of fluorescent bulbs because I just let the clerk tell me which ones to buy for plants. I have to prune everything but the Java fern out every few months because they all grow so fast.

I don't supplement with anything except this kind of Flourish:

I use it at about half strength with every weekly water change. One bottle lasts me forever because my tank is only 15 US gallons.

I used to use the specialized substrate/fertilizer that is marketed for plant growth but I realized that it is not necessary.
Keep going!
