We bought my daughter the Aqueon 36g bow front for Christmas. It is cycled and the fish are good. We planted about 8 plants and they are not thriving.
Aqueon describes the included bulb as, "24" 17-watt T8 full spectrum fluorescent lamp"
I don't know what Full Spectrum means. I really don't know anything about lighting or jargon used to describe it.
We aren't looking to upgrade the hood and light fixture right now.
Is there a bulb that I should think about replacing this standard bulb with?
My only desire is to get the best plant growing light I can muster out of this single bulb fluorescent hood.
