I purchased the following tank kit and it came with a "10 light LED clip on". It is a 5 gallon and will house one Betta and perhaps a nerite snail (and heater and filter). I want some plants. I am wondering if the light that came with the tank will be sufficient.
I like to research things before I jump in and I must say the whole lighting thing is kind of hard to grasp. And boy are there a lot of different (and expensive!) light systems out there. Any links to "aquarium lights for dummies" kind of thing would be appreciated as well.
I don't really want to get into "high tech" where I need CO2 and such. I am good with adding Flourish, which I have already picked up. I have read about substrate and purchased Eco Complete. It was what was available and I believe I need to put that under the gravel??? I like the look of the Anubias (and know that they should not have the roots under substrate). I have seen and remember my aunt that always had guppies with what she called "Elodea" and I have found is called Anachris. My understanding is it can float or be planted. And would like others as well too.
My son (with my help) has a 30 gallon with 7 guppies and we would like some plants in there as well.
So in general are LEDS good for planted tanks or do I need something else?
Thanks for all your help!
hope I can add this link:
