Okay, fancy pants lights made me giggle. I'm looking around the room thinking.. You guys have fancy pants lights. :P

A lot of plants will live at 1-2 watts per gallon. Of course all my tanks have built in hoods, so it's just a matter of buying a 6500k cfl bulb or if it's the big tube kind, there are LOTS of plant lights on the market.

Lights aren't expensive. I can get 'em for 5- 10 dollars.

I could never keep plants alive, but with my NPT I have explosive growth rates! Amazon sword gets 2 new leaves a week! It is huge! You should try!

the trick is, getting the plants. the pet store i go to, i don't like the look of their live plants. often, they have fish in with them, and a few times, i saw dead fish in there. >.>; haven't looked lately, though. if i can get there tomorrow, i'll take a look while hunting for my new betta. xD

You can order on line as well. Also, check for other stores in your area.
