is it normal that my acan went from small red blue 20200823_133526.jpg
To this mostly red meaty. 16015074450124128699746788878266.jpg Wanted to make sure it was normal/healthy

Looks fine to me too. I have noticed that they will change color over time due to lighting and water chemistry. I have a couple that have changed colors slightly since I bought them making me think that it was due to the lighting and the nutrients in my water being different from wherever they came from.

That is something I have experienced as well. lighting definitely plays a role. just out of curiosity, do you have T5? My acans did. the exact same thing in the exact same color Profile.

Yeah I have a 4 bulb t5 I run 3 blue+ and an actinic. Was thinking of swapping one of the blue for a coral+ down the road
