And for lighting will daylight bulbs from walmart or home depot be good for lighting? And if they are is warmer or cooler better for a freshwater tank?
With the bulbs you will want to get a full spectrum bulb with a kelvin temp around 6500 K works best for plants. Also a note on the plants from petco, make sure to always research before you buy them, some of the plants that they sell to use in the aquarium are not submersiable and will eventully die when put into the aquarium.
