I've just started my first planted tank in a 10 gallon. It will give you an idea just how easy it is.

What I meant by that comment was any florescent tube, cfl screw ins, normal screw in light bulb that is somewhere's around 5-6500 kelvin rated will do just perfectly fine for live plants. And then that's really all you need for live plants: Lights; Fish (for the co2) and uhm obviously water

I'm new to the hobby and I started my ten gallon in January. I have regular aquarium gravel and my plants are doing nicely. Just picked up a comprehensive fert and they are doing even better. I know I'm a rook but lots of live plants are the way to go. They are easy and they keep your water nice. I still change my water every week about 30%, and clean the front glass. But get plants man... seriously.
