    What plants do you want to keep? Or are you looking for low-medium light plants? You start getting into medium light, CO2 and fertlizers are required.

    Depending on what substrate you have and the plantS you want to keep a T5HO are great plant lights

    When you are ready for a bulb, this is what I use, but fatter (the fat ones aren't on the website). Cheap, and do the same thing as ones from the pet store!
