I am looking for the correct lighting needed for a 10 gallon, heavily planted aquarium with mostly stem plants and mosses, with the following livestock:
red cherry shrimp
I do not know how the aquarium would rate in the terminology of low-light, high-light, etc. I just need to know the lumens, K, the type of bulb...perhaps someone could post a link to an example, or a cheap place to purchase them? Thank-you very much!
I really enjoy my Aquatclife 20" fixture. You'll need CO2 if you're going to use it, though. I just use the stock bulbs that come with it. It's a nice quality fixture and has a splash guard so you can easily put window screening over the light if it is too much.
If you don't need it to be neat looking. I use a clamp light from Home Depot or lowes with a CFL bulb that is 6500K. Works great for me. I have moss, java fern, Pygmy chain sword, and other low light plants. With what your looking to grow the clamp light would be fine.
