Approx 2-3 watts per gallon will grow low light plants. Most single florescent stock fixtures aren't enough light. So I got the cheaper incandescent hood ( $15 for 10g tank , top and filter at Petsmart) and added my 2 CFL plant bulbs.

And don't let the high tech snobs deter you if you aren't ready to go High light/CO2/massive ferts. I had people telling me I had to go CO2 to be successful. I'm very happy with the growth I get. **** , my Ludwigia has to be trimmed weekly !!!

Someday I may try High Tech but not yet. I'm low budget.

I'm not new to fish tanks, but I am new to Planted tanks. I love learning new things. I'm on several forums and joined my local Aquatic Plant Society. Nice folks.

to AA!

Love your tanks! I've always been interested in plants and have been investing into it.

You live in the Bay Area? I've been there! I went on a trolley once and it was so much fun! My parents used to live there way back when.

Heard of Half Moon Bay? I used to have some cousins there. It's a really nice area.

I've ridden horses on the beach in Half Moon Bay. Also had drinks at The Moonraker restaurant. I'm learning new things everyday about my tanks. Starting a new build this week. 10g rimless.
