Just got a 20 gallon for the sorority tank I want to start for a great deal. It came with a (disgusting) hood that has a florescent light.This is going to sound like the stupidest question ever, but are florescents okay? It just seems so bright and.... hospitalish.
One of my main concerns is that I am leaning towards making it a planted tank, and so I was wondering which (high, low, etc) kind of plants this would be good for. The bulb says it is a 15 watt. I am really trying to plan every detail ahead for this tank so I don't make the same mistakes as I did for my other tanks, so ANY info or suggestions would be great!!
