I either got the plants from members here or I ordered it online. Not much selection locally - sometimes I find an actual aquatic plant in a tube at petco but even then - its usually dead or dying.
i do suggest dwarf saggitaria. micro swords also do well if your lightin is good enough. usually carpeting plants need co2 and highlight considerations, otherwise they wont carpet and will grow upwards instead.
would liquid Co2 work? I have a bottle of that and a bottle of API leaf something and a small bottle of Aqueon's plant nutrient stuff.
Lighting is a basic T8. Is there a better bulb to get? I don't want to buy a new or expensive light strip and I know zoo med has a bunch of different tube lights but I dont know if they are for reef tanks or what. ALso I am not sure of they work with the aqueon light strip I have (current bulb has 2 prongs if that means anything)
...lighting confuses me
