Fortunately I have an extra light strip (15w fl). Unfortunately, I can't find a daylight bulb in 15w where I live. Are those available in stores? I can only find cool and warm white, and sunshine. Is sunshine the better one even though it's only 5000K? Wouldn't that still give me a yellow tint?

I know it's still not much wattage, but it's possible to have real plants, right? You don't think even low light plants can thrive in 1w/gal or less? Although I know it will get addicting, I'm not looking for an overly lush tank. I just don't want a brown rotting mess in there.

Thanks.
