I've had live plants before and have a basic knowledge of some plants and how to care for them, not so much on lighting requirements and all. I recently got a new 20 gallon, and I thought it would be a good time to try a dirted tank. I have my soil, Miracle Grow Organic and my sand to top it off with. From the last time I had a planted tank, I went a cheaper/DIY route with lighting, and got clip on desk lamps and CFL's that were strong enough to help the plants grow and had good success with the lights themselves. The 20 gallon Marineland kit I got came with LED
lights, but I don't know if these lights will be sufficient enough (I'm thinking probably not), so I do have the CFL's I used last time if the LED
's aren't sufficient for plant growth. What plants would you guys recommend I go with for my 20 gallon? My last go around with a planted tank (which was a 55 gallon), I had an amazon sword that went nuts and got huge. I loved how it looked, but I'm worried it will totally take over a 20 gallon at some point. All suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
