light question


I have an old marineland Eclipse 3 setup, minus the filtration in the lid which originally came with the tank. It is 12" long, 7" wide, 9.5" deep. The light is in the hood.

The light is a Natural Daylight F6-T5 tube. Would this be appropriate for a low tech. planted tank?


The tank and light, + a Toms aquarium Mini Internal Filter + a 25 watt Hydor heater.
Lots of plants appropriate to the lighting and one Betta.

I am having a very hard time deciding on what to use for substrate. I am reading Diana Walstads book on using dirt, as well posts on this forum describing all the neat things such as Aquasoil and Fluorite. Not to mention Co2 systems led lights, etc.

Yes, at this point I am confused.
But the basic question concerns the F6-T5 Tube mentioned above.
