If you have a filter and/or live active growing plants you don't need to do 100% water changes and with the plants you have you may not need ferts-the fish waste and any left over food will work as the plant food-you have slow growers and feeders.....

I have done that too...added a pleco for a day or so....laffs......just make sure your nitrate and pH are pretty close or acclimate well

I don't buy or use aquarium bulb...cost too much especially when regular daylight bulbs will work and are basically the same thing for less-just change them out every 6mo-1yr (your plants will tell you when it is time)....for plants you want the 6500-6700k 10w is good 20w you are still pushing it with the plant species you have, however, just add some stem plants and/or floating plants to use some of the light energy before the algae can use it......it is all about balance with planted tanks and algae control.....
