Plants in Eclipse 12 Gallon


I have just bought one of the Eclipse 12 gallon tanks. I want to have some low light plants in there. Is the stock lighting good enough for some low light plants or would I have to upgrade the lighting? If so, what light would suffice for the low light plants and any idea where I would get it?

Thanks for any help.

Just swap out the factory bulb with one in the 6500k or higher range and you'll be fine. CFLs would work too depending on the fixture you have.

Thanks. The tank will be here this coming week and I will look into swapping the bulb.
