I'm not new to fish tanks, but since I am away at college, I decided to get a small 10 gal for my desk.
It has been set up for about two months now. I have a sand/pebble substrate, with some large rocks. For plants, I believe I have Cryptocoryne x willisii, and some unknown fern pictured. It is filtered by a sponge filter, and has a 15 w life-glo light. Says 6,500 K compact fluorescent full spectrum daylight bulb, with 65 lumens per watt. Is this overkill for the plant size and tank?
There's also five white cloud minnows and three ghost shrimp.
Question is, should I try to do a co2 system for the plants? Do they need it?
Thats about all for now. I've attached some pics for reference.
