Default Need help getting my planted tank to thrive again

^ I honestly don't agree with the small tank part... especially since small tanks (quart tanks anyone?) are all I've ever done and I'm probably the laziest water changer on the planet (what's a water change?)

What I've realized is that stocking is very important. only when you have a good amount of livestock (snails included) will the plants thrive...

Full spectrum lighting is great, and definitely recommended.
I've also grown wisteria under 3200k lighting before, so I'm not sure if lighting is really your problem....

looking at the wisteria, I don't think it looks unhealthy... give it a while...
