Hello !

I have a ten gallon Mr. Aqua that I have setup with
some mosses started and growing. Want to know which
lighting would be the best for good green growth.

CFL 10 watt

twin led lights combo pack
one 3.8 watt strip with warm white 2700 k
one star pack of 5 = 7.5 watt with warm white 2700 k

currently Fluval compact light with 13 watt 6400 k

Warm whites won't do much for you. 65k is the way to go. For LED specs and awesome info search for hoppy. He has some great post.
