Bought Marineland LED kit, am I out of luck for live plants?
I just got this 10 Gallon Marineland LED 100 kit, long story short, I found out later this light is pretty bad when it comes to growing live plants. The tank is cycling right now with a java fern in it, the store assistant sold it to me along with the tank.
I do want more live plants, but am i really out of luck? can someone suggest me some plants that might be suitable for my tank set up?If there is any! My sources for plants are limited, there is only a petsmart, petco and 2 local pet store around me and they don't carry that many plants. What about small pound plants from nurseries?
I found a banana plant in one of the local pet shop, the guy told me it's ok with low light, I don't trust him much because they didn't take care of their fishes. I checked some websites, ones says it's ok with low light the other says needs high light, will this work in my tank?
Any advice would be appreciated.
