Im trying to find plants for my betta tank and just want to know if my bulb would be considered high or moderate light for when im picking plants. The tank is 9" high.

I have 15w 120v bulbs in both of my tanks and I would say its a moderate light but good for plants.

doesnt really give much info so its really hard to find plants...im thinking perhaps ill just try the anubius, i was just worried it would develop the algea issues...but it does seem to be more of what im looking for so i dunno...any other thoughts?
