What kind of light???

    I need to get a hood for my 10g and I was wondering what kind of lighting will be best for low to medium light plants!

    The standard 10 gallon hood with 2 screw in sockets would be fine for you. I would get 2 screw in CFL's in the 6500k range. Just check to make sure they are not too wide to fit in the space. They make U-shaped CFL's specifically for aquariums that tend to fit better. I think even saw some at Walmart recently. Otherwise I know that bigalspets.com sells them. You want light bulbs in the 6500k range.

    I agree with Dolfan. You can just get some CFL bulbs at walmart between the 6500k rating. I had the same bulbs in my 10 gallon tank and my plants did great. Especially with low light plants
