Lighting for 20 gallon tank?
 
Hello, I'm starting a new 20 gallon dirted planted tank, no CO2.
I was wondering what some are some good light fixtures I could use?

I had great help on my last tank from the forum, and I'm glad to be asking questions here :)

CFLs in clamp lights. Economical, good for low tech tanks or small ones.

Home Depot. Look for the 6500K spiral flourescent bulbs. I know for a fact that GE makes them.

Sent from my phone via my job's wifi, most likely.
