    i saw ur comment on how u wanted to change your tank to a planted tank if you still plan on changing it over though you should no...i have a 44 pent tall and the major thing ive learned growing plants is you'll need proper lighting and good substrate i have a nova extreme HO T5 lighing system and for substrate i used flourite. it took me a while to get the lighting down, i kept reading and people kept telling me that 6.7k bulbs would be fine to grow plants but the plants didnt look healthy due to the tank being 26" deep, i ended up swapping a 6 .7k bulb out for an actinic bulbs to help penetrate deeper into the tank and all my plants started growing taller faster and look much more healthy
