I think purple is 1 of the hardest colors to keep. My purples usually just fade and aren't as deep colored as when I got them. They end up more blue looking. I don't know what the secret is to keeping them a deep color.
I had a question kinda reffering to this i guess....my green monti is starting to look brown...any ideas?
Well my water param's are right on. As for lighting, i have 156 watts going into the tank. Im not sure of how much water is in the tank actually. i have 55lbs of LR so im sure there isnt 46g of water in my 46g tank.(3.4wpg if u calculate 46g of water) I got it placed in the back of the tank so its not getting all that much flow. It hasnt stopped growing thats for sure but it has started to turn brown. You think i should put it in a higher flow area? I'm not super concerned as its getting to big for its own good and seems no matter where i try to put it, its going to shadow other stuff in the tank. My orange encrusting monti seems to be doing fine so idk!
