    It's the weirdest thing; I switched from a 10w compact fluorescent 50/50 right over the water to a PAR38 LED a little over a foot above the water and now my flower pot looks like the lighting is too intense. He instantly started sucking in with barely any polyp extension and losing color. Before...
