Hi all,
It is a lovely tank, are your Philodendrons doing better now with the LED lighting?

Thanks, I haven't got Philodendron anymore. Because of the heat that the GU10 lights were producing, the Philodendron was a lost case. I want to try Philodendron sp. Suriname to grow under the LED lighting and see how it will do.
