I'm Mike. My dad and I have been running a 29g tank for a couple years now, and I'm looking to add some live plants to it. I was thinking some anacharis, some sort of grass(star grass maybe), java fern, and some amazon blades would be awesome. I currently have a mixed gravel substrate. The problem is that the hood we have on our tank currently has a 22w bulb(that's less than 1 watt per gallon!!!). What would be best to gain moderate lighting(1-3 wpg
)? I've done a bit of research on live plants, but i'd like to know as much as possible before adding anything. Thanks
Looking around and finding some info. Like I mentioned I currently have a hood with a single 22w NO fluorescent bulb. After Looking around i found this which looks like it may do the trick.
The price looks nice. It comes with 2-17w NO fluorescent bulbs which would put me up around 1wpg. This seems like it would work well for the plants I'm looking at since they are mainly low-moderate lighting and all seem to be pretty hardy plants. Or should I look for a little more power?
Opions and/or suggestions?
