Flourescent bulbs?

Ok so I've already mentioned I'll be getting a new 3 gallon soon for my
b-day, so I'll be getting the tank next week!!!!!!!!! So I have a few questions:

1. If I happen to end up with a tank that doesn't include flourescent light
and I have live plants, is it neccessary to find a flourescent bulb that fits?

2. Will the filter suck in Ares' tail? He's a crowntail, so I have a hard time
imagining him with even more ripped rays LOL! If so, what could I do?

Someone please help!! Thanks for reading!

Yes. A flourescent bulb would be necessary, and in my opinion look better. If your hood won't allow a fluorescent lamp, or tube, you can almost always find a compact fluorescent bulb that it will.

You'll have to create some sort of barrier that would prohibit any sort of fin entry if this is something you're concerned with. A thin piece of sponge or strip of pantyhose could be rubberbanded to the intake.

Thank you Kittles!! One more question, do I need to cycle a 3 gallon tank if it contains live plants?
