I do want to get a sword or two for the back center of my tank to add more cover as of right now I have one side densely "planted" and the other side more open and is sparsely "planted" other than two small anubias plants.
I would spread the plants out so the tank is more evenly planted, allowing of course for smaller areas with more or less to replicate nature.
Swords need moderate light (more in a moment) and yes, fertilization is usually necessary. A general complete liquid works, like Flourish Comprehensive Supplement or Brightwell Aquatics FlorinMulti.
Can you give me the data on your 10000K tube? This will probably help me suggest whether or not it wilol suffice. Some will, some won't. The Kelvin is only the indicator of colour hue, I need to check spectrum.
