Old fish lady recommended CFL bulbs 6400 or 6500.

Putting them in the clamp ons improves their PAR, too!

It does improve the PAR by reflecting the light into the tank more. The light always stays the same.

Thanks guys! This is great

Very excited to do some more planted tanks! Especially some bigger ones 15 gallon divided (or 10) and perhaps a sorority in my future

Yeah, the options for plants opens a lot more and you find plants that you didn't even know about.

Currently I just have some Java Fern, Hornwort and Moneywort in my 3 gallon

I think its very important to your plant, You have to select best tank for planted the plants. You have to everyday change its water and some plants also required water. There are many different types of tank available for plants.

According to me I suggest you boost LED and 10gallon tank lights for rimless tanks. It is also manage the various heights of the tank. These lights are designed only for clamp on for rimless tank.

I love my clamp desk lamp (like the ones that clamp on to your desk, not to your tank)
I simply lift it up when I need to have access to the tank, then lower it again when I'm done.
