| || | 20 gallon high, low tech planted setup.
hi, i have a 20 gallon high setup it has been running for about a year and i have some plants which are not doing to good, probable because our windown was open and the water cooled down alot, the plant never really grew extremly well and i was wanting to re-do the setup, i have a corallife fixture that can hold two bulbs but only has one 65 watt 21 inch bulb, i was wondering what i could do to get better plants, i have black flouvirite sand, and i was wanting to know if i should change is to some sort of gravel for better results? any suggestions and id also want to know if i should get a second 65 watt bulb for my plants? i have a eheim external cannister for 30 gallons im pretty sure, with the flow bar. and there just a few guppies in there rn but im gonna change the stock afterwards.i was just looking for some help, for all the criteria needed to grow a nice lush envirenment. thanks for the help.
