Ok.. here's what I got going on now. Added a desk lamp w/ a 14w cfl bulb. Hopefully thats sufficient for this plant.. if not then I'll try again to get a 'regular' pothos. Lol!
It is brighter than the picture shows too.

Is there any way to position the light right above the plant? Because CFLs are only effective for plant growth when less than a foot away from the plant. A desk lamp 4 feet away and to the side probably won't make much difference to the plant.

The best pothos for next-to-no lighting would be a jade pothos - it is entirely green with no variegation - but that kind is hard to find. Golden pothos is the most readily available species and that would still work better than the marble queen type but I would still try to put the light closer to it for best growth.

Well that is pertinent info to know!! There is no outlet I can reach on that side of the tank.. I want the ac70 on that side cause the canister filter is on the other.. I don't think a clip lamp would work because of the lip on the tank.. hhhmmmm... what to do ?.. Gotta figure this out tho..

Yes it is. I cannot tell whether it is another "marble queen" or if it's a golden pothos with the lighting though. A golden pothos will have yellow speckles, a marble queen white.
