I have had a 29 gallon tank for about 3 weeks now (it is still cycling with 2 black mollies). It is my first tank.
I would like to have real plants in it. I have some now, but I don't think they are doing so well. I ordered a Zoo Med Flora Sun Maximum Growth Fluorescent bulb for my 24" hood, but I was disappointed when it came and it was only 17 watts. That's less than the 20 watt bulb that came with my tank. The website said that it was great for plants, but isn't that not enough wattage?
Can anyone suggest a florescent bulb for my tank? I am pretty confused with all the different color/spectrum options.
If it helps, I have a small CO2
diffuser that is probably more suited to a 20 gallon tank but I guess it is better than nothing. And there is only one spot for a bulb in the hood.
Any help would be appreciated!
