Thank you for the replies so I'm going to be going for the 52lt. Bigger is better. I would like to be able to sustain plants though, I've read the platies enjoy a nibble and like to hid in the foliage. What type of light would I need, don't want any fancy plants just something suitable for my platies and low maintenance. Suggestions anyone?? Xxx

Upgrades are great, but a problem for me since my mom says no more tanks above 20 gallons. I am planning on someday getting another 10 and a 20. By then I will have no more aquarium room other than some small Betta tanks.

I dont know if the lights you have can support any plants, but I think stuff like java moss and java fern is best for low light situations.
Got a question about loaches? Ask me!
Loach count: 21
Baby fish count: 700+ (shelldwellers, gbr, angelfish)

Do you think I'd be able to add additional lighting to support plants? Xx

You could always change the fixture if it's leds. Though I believe you could support low light plants easily enough.

The lights seem to be built into the hood though, so replacing them would mean losing that black plastic hood if that were of any concern.
