Hi, my tank is a freshwater 10 gallon tank.
The tank is still in cycle and is still going for 2 more weeks.
I had troubles with my lighting system and needed help on it to grow my java fern.
The java fern is now in a temporary cup with my tank water with natural sunlight for about 8 hours a day.
My tank is going to be in a dark place because all of the places in my room are used up.
The java fern is still young and when put in my tank, the distance the light is from the tank is 4 inches.
There will only be 1 java fern in my tank and after the cycle, my first 2 fish will be put in and after 1 week, my fern will be put in the tank and the fish's feces will be fertilizer for my java fern and the co2
the fish breathes out will be the air for my java fern's photosynthesis.
So is this a good light bulb for my java fern im saying.
And my headlight is only a 50/50 light bulb installation.

Thank you very much.
And if in case you wanted to know how my java fern, i dont have a picture, but i do have some descriptions:
It has black streaks
its starting to turn yellow a bit, but not fully
there are some holes in it, with some brown coloration around the holes.
I know my java is in some kind of disease, but i cant do anything for real, i might just need to buy a new java fern then.
But for now im more concerened in the lighting please, Thank you very much again
