Question about lighting and plant growth
I have a 125g aquarium (pics included) and I currently use 4 65w compact flo 50/50 bulbs (10k/460NM)
Would my plantsgrow better with 4 65w CF 10k bulbs or is what I am using now acceptabe? My aquarium pics are a little older and the fake plants have been removed. I just put in a large piece of driftwood that I got today into my tank so it will not be in the picture. In my tank I have Anubias, flame moss, amazon sword and some sword looking plant that hitchhiked on 1 of my purchased anubias's. Also if done in small amounts is acceptable to add new and different type of substrate to the tank. I have no idea what my substrate is but it is VERY light weight and moves easily and my plants dont really have a solid foundation to anchor themselves to. Current inhabitants are platies, BN plecos, botia angelicus loaches and a a few synodontis cats as this was once a cichlid tank. Any info anyone can give me would be great. I thank you for your time and I truly hope I can be a positive influance on this site. Oh I have also removed the huge piece of holey rock.
