Acro Update the results!
But yeah, I don't know much about lighting, I have all low light standard lighting.

ZeeZ Looks like nobody here has a clue.

I guess I'll have to use or maybe make my own lamp and use a CFL instead.

Thanks! I did worry about that part but so far I haven't seen anything show any troubling signs. The Ramshorn snails like to cruise up to the water's surface and sit in the neck for a bit then cruise back down. I don't know if that's a sign or not, but if I see any issues, then I can always lower the water level to the top under the neck to have maximum oxygen exchange There's no reason a small neck would prevent oxygen being exchanged if the water level is lower.

Thank you. The reason why I made this thread was because I want a LED light that will grow the plants. I have no idea if what I posted or that Ikea will do the job or not. If nobody knows the answer, then I guess I'll have to find a nice desk lamp and use some kind of CFL instead.

ZeeZ Couple stalks of Anacharis, Najas Grass and a small Java Fern along with three juvie Ramshorn Snails and about 10 plus change RCS.

I'd like to add more plants, though. Maybe a Dwarf Sag.

Lighting for Beer Jug Nano

I originally thought that the secondary lighting from my beverage dispenser nano tank would be enough for my 1/2 gallon Beer Jug Nano but now I'm not so sure. The photo looks bright because of the mirror's reflection but it's not that bright.

I'm looking at these as small lighting options. Someone mentioned there was a 1w gooseneck light at Target. I don't know if it's this one though. Thoughts?

Or perhaps this?

Here's the tank -
