I need fluorescent though. I already have incandescent lights and they areen't strong enough because my aquarium is too tall.
And it has to be 16'. Anything else is too big or too small -.-
I love my tank but finding stuff for it is difficult...

Well, i'm not sure just how much you can spend on lighting, if you want to go with the most bang for your $, I would just put the glass canopy on the tank and go to Lowes or whatever and get a shop drop light or two, put in a 24 watt 6500k cfl or two and just put them right over or on the glass.

Also root tabs are fine to use. I have used Seachem root tabs as well as these blood and bone Aussie made ones. Because they gradually break down, if you don't bury them properly or you disturb the substrate they are in they can leech out slightly into the water column and sometimes give off a slightly 'rotten egg' smell.

However, my clay blood and bone ones have come right out of the substrate and my plants just grow over the top of them and have not had any issues with water quality or clarity because of it.

I always use root tabs for plants like swords and crypts. Flourite itself is just an inert, clay based substrate. All it is good for is pulling nutrients out of the water column and into the substrate. So if you are not dosing fertilisers it is really going to do zilch for your plants.

You dont NEED an fluorescent light strip.
You can use an incandescent light strip, just put in a fluorescent bulb. I've been doing that between 6months to a year.
