Hello, ive been keeping aquariums for probably around 8 years now, but have never done a planted tank and ive been wanting to for quite a while. Im gonna try it out on a 29 gallon tank because it isnt too large or too small. The tank isnt up and running yet, and i do not have a light. Ill be able to start the tank up in a few weeks and cycle it etc. Im just gonna have gravel, i know its an inert substrate but i really just plan on a very basic low light setup. Ive been researching plants and having a planted tank for well over a year and i have a pretty good idea of what to do. Im just wondering what the best light would be for a 29 gallon tank. The dimensions are 30 x 12 inches, the height is around 18 inches i believe. I dont think ill need something extremely bright, something designed for low lighted plants of course but nothing crazy. I won't have any kind of c02 system. I will dose the tank with nutrients when needed. Something thats a little bit confusing still is just finding the balance with it all. Knowing if its getting enough nutrients for the amount of light etc. I assume there will be enough c02 from the fish and tank in general to sustain plants. Since i have no experience its kind of live and learn. Any recommendations for finding that balance? And what lights do you recommend for that sized tank? Also, im getting a 75 gallon soon and i would like to plant that tank in the future. Id prefer to get experience first with something smaller. But any recommendations for good lights for a 75 gallon? It'll probably be the same low light setup. Thanks for any help!
