I agree. I love a planted tank but the last thing I have time for is high tech, not to mention that pressurized Co2 has me baffled. I'd never figure out how to put the equipment together and keep it running. I'm technically challenged and can never even figure out how to get my lawnmower started
I went with CF lighting, 6700 K, approx. 2 WPG, timers on a 12 hr on/12 hr off schedule. I dose with Flourish, Flourish Excel and use root tabs. I have an array of plants and so far the only ones I haven't been able to grow are plants that have alot of red coloring to them. The reds require C02 and high wattage. Even stem plants, which I've heard can be difficult, I've had no problem with. Once you learn how to prune & propagate correctly you'll get a jungle in no time.
