If your using Easylife Ferro and the leaves have still not turned red, then it's probably not enough light.

Looking good @Drifty. :]

Don't be surprised if you get an algae outbreak for while until the plants adjust to the new lighting.

I wanted nerite snails but was told no, they only have these yellow and black ones. Like when I wanted an SAE and was told they only have flying foxes and not the Siamese type, after some careful pattern checking it was obvious they were SAE so I bought one.
