Really old tank.

I have this really old tank. IK it's old because it has either t10s or t12 not sure. Anyways is it even possible to grow any plant under these conditions? The tank is a 30g long. 36" long. Not sure on the height. (Of course the important factor).

Well a normal 30 gallon is actually
36" Long 16" High and 12" Deep. So it's probably just a normal 30 gallon. I'm not sure about growing plants but I hoped this helped c:

Oh, I've just always thought of the tall 30g being the normal. And the long being long. Lol makes sense,

Really old tanks have metal frames and slate bottoms.

It's definitely possible to grow plants under very low lighting, but your plant selection will be very limited. Post another topic in the Planted tank subforum with more info on the lighting, and we can help point you in the right direction.
