Rozmere Posted April 1 Share Posted April 1 I wanted to get back into aquariums after almost 5 years. I have very very little money and I live in a tiny town where I have a hard time finding anything. I traveled 2 hours out of town and used my savings to buy a 10-gallon tank, lid, and all the main essentials, plus some Fluval Bio-Stratum plant substrate and a couple of anubias. I didn't have enough money to get any of the lights I looked at but I recalled that I still had a light at home in a box that I never used on previous aquariums. Once I got back home I realized the light I had was terrible so I went to my local Walmart and bought the best (non-aquarium) grow light I could find (and afford). It's a "Feit Electric LED 32W 8" Adjustable Full Spectrum Clamp Grow Light". It's a LED that claims to be 2400 lumens, 6500K, and use 32 watts of power. I have it mounted 6-8" above my aquarium. I'll admit I've forgotten EVERYTHING I once knew about aquarium lighting so my question is, should this be sufficient to grow plants like anubias, water wisteria, dwarf saggitaria, micro swords, etc? I need to get my plants in good shape before my cycle completes and I add some fish friends. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
