Yes, most all people with planted Spec tanks up grade the LED lighting(it's only fair lighting)
The Fluval 13 watt CFL works well if a little pricey

^ this. The stock LED, while bright to us, isnt that strong of a light. The Fluval 13 watt lamp is quite strong and grows pretty much anything in a tank this size.

Quick update: Winter has been hard on this little tank so in the not so distant future I will transferring over everything to my newest tank, a biocube 8. The biocube is currently empty with a craftmesh divider and will house two male bettas. I have already started a new thread here.

How is winter "hard" on a tank? Too cold in your room? I'd recommend a heater upgrade... the Marina C10 you had works reasonable well in stable temps, but if temps are fluctuating a lot, you'll want something beefier. I upgraded mine to a Cobalt Neo-Therm 25w adjustable, and have been very happy with it. Fits in the same pump compartment. (barely, but it fits)

I meant hard as in there was some neglect on my part as a betta keeper. Let other things come between me and my fish so now that life has settled my betta will be receiving an upgrade to the Biocube.
