I would guess so. You MAY be able to dose some ferts and get by without CO2, but I would doubt it.

Yeah I may hold off on that for now. But I don't feel the stock round light is ideal for plants either. The hunt continues

"Ideal", no. Depends on the plants, though. Low light plants like Anubias, Java Ferns, etc. do just fine with the stock light.

I cut a small rectangle off the lid facing the back and run my heater wire & airstone hose through. Lid stays flat.

Here is an update to my first Spec and a shot of the second one I setup at work today. Running both stock lights on the second one. Not sure how much better it will be....

Here's mine. Just set it up so haven't got all the plants I want.
All I have so far is a little glosso and a Moss ball. Not sure how I want to scape it. Gonna pick up a piece of manzanita, just have to find one small enough.

Mine, work in progress
Still adding co2 upgraded light and working on scape design. Have my mopai wood submerged in water waiting. I'm trying to let my plants grown so I can scape once theoretically lol.
I have about 10 shrimp, some ghost some cherry. Want to add a few more as well as a Oto and maybe a tiny school of cardinals?

Any recommendations for light? I'm leaning wards a finnex.
