I have the 6500k too and mine wasn't growing. I added another 6500 and it grows like a weed now
Water it! That's what I do
But my chaeto has grown about 20x it's starting size under these lights. They are working for me.
Here's a pic of my cheato as of 2 weeks ago. It's larger than this now. It started out as 3 clumps the size of golf balls that merged together and grew to this size.
Mine Litterly doubled in size overnight.
I got a 100 Watt equiv. bulb. 6500K from lowes. and put the ligh an inch above the surface. The water Is super clear. Nusance Algea is dying off quick. I think Its because I wasnt skimming last night. So there was a lot more nutrients in the water. I also Had little white bugs show up overnight.
