Need to know best lighting for mosses


Hello !

I have a ten gallon Mr. Aqua that I have setup with
some mosses started and growing. Want to know which
lighting would be the best for good green growth.

CFL 10 watt

2 -CFL 10 watt bulbs in light hood ( I noticed this one had the best green growth )

twin led lights combo pack
one 3.8 watt strip with warm white 2700 k
one star pack of 5 = 7.5 watt with warm white 2700 k

currently Fluval compact light with 13 watt 6400 k

Warm whites won't do much for you. 65k is the way to go. For LED specs and awesome info search for hoppy. He has some great post.
