20 gallon tank lighting question


Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and have several questions concerning my aquarium's lighting.

my tank is a 24L x 14W x 16H 20Gallons.

the lighting that I use is 4 T5 X 14W.
I have a CO2 tank as well.

the aquarium is mostly planted with HC planted on the floor.

My questions is if my lighting is enough for this setup and will the light reach the floor. I don't really notice any pearling occurring as well.



I would be greatful for any advice

Great job with the aquascape! It will be awesome when it's filled in.

+1 Great aquascape!! If you have CO2, just turn it up until you do see pearling. Are you dosing ferts too?

Thanks guys!

I just started using ferts.

do you guys think that my lighting is enough?

Because the last tank I made concluded with all the plants turning a dark green color and stopped growing and dead leaves.
