LOL, nope not a aquarium goddess by a long shot!

BUT I can say any mushrooms and zooas would probably grow just fine.

Can you take a picture of the lighting underneath and the writing on the bulb(s)? Just so we know what you're dealing with. That'd be my first thought before recommending anything else.

They will do well in lower light tanks thats for sure. Do you know what the bulbs say on them? That would be a great help.
