hey everyone im new and had a few questions if someone coulld help. im in the proccess of cycling my 20g tank and wanted to add some live plants. can i do this while cycling ? and i dont really wanna go spending a whole bunch of money on lighting i was thinking of starting with some java fern or java moss. i dont have any special kinda bulb right now just a 18 inch flouresent tube doesnt say watts or nething just that its a eclipse natural daylight f15t8 18". idk if anybody knows what that is or if java fern or java moss will grow with that. and do i have to get fertilizers for these plants? sorry if im leaving ne important info out ive tried to figure it out reading thread after thread but cant seem to get a straight answer so i figured id ask.

F15T8 18" = flourescent 15W T8 bulb 18" long ?.

Java fern/moss are low light plants so you will be ok with them and also Anubias.
If your light is a 15W,you may need something stronger for other plants in your 20G.Someone else with more knowledge will be more help.
