My first planted tank 60 gallon
 
ok i have a 60 gallon with 4 angels 1 blood parrot, 4 balck skirts 7 spotted corys and 3 otto's. the plants that i have in now are Anacharis,moneywort,hornwort,red luwdgia, and i have some more coming by mail next week which are Guppy Grass
pennywort
hornwort
cut leaf water sprite
vals
Anacharis
Java Moss


i have a total of 146 watts on the tank right now, which is about 2.4 watts a gallon. Is that enough light for these plants. also i bought a liquid fert called Plant gro iron enriched aquatic plant fertilizer is this stuff ok to use. if so i believe i am reading the directions right it says to add it once a week. i plan on getting root tabs for the rooted plants. And i would like to try and not do co2 but if i have to i will. but do you think i can get away without doing co2.

Thanks

plenty of light for those plants. co2 would really help the growth. i would take back the liquid fert and go with some dry ferts.

without adding co2 i would start off with maybe half of what they say(estimative index) for a 60 gal.
