Hi I have a nano cube with the std. 2x36W PC lights i have frogspawn which is doing well interms of growth, I've seen the heads double in the last 10mnths, BUT when i got the LPS the green colour was very strong , but now only the lower heads are green, the upper heads are a beige/green colour although very healthy and growing normally. Could the light be too strong as the top heads are around 15cm below the lights?

I doubt that very much - those lights arent that strong - but better ask the LPS experts - Hennie will be of great help here - go to Hennies Corner and ask him - he has had the most success with frogspawn(I assume this is what you meant in your post) that I've ever seen.

Could the colouration not be becuase the top pieces are younger and still grwing or flow related?

Try adding some iodine and amino acids to get them to colour up

I have dosed some amino acids from bird products.. The AVI-mune range... Must just dilute it properly... Much much cheaper then marine brands..
