So I am very new to the hobby of planting....very very new. I am currently in a position of travel and have bought a Betta as a little companion.
I am looking to create a stylish home with the Finnex Schuber Wright Crustacean Star 4 gallon with the two daylight LEDs. The fact is that I am completely lost in all the information on lighting and plant requirements. I get some basic concepts with low tech; however, from my understanding when you get into high lighting you're also dealing with high energy consumption...CO2, ferts, ect.
Can someone give me an idea of how powerful these lights are? Suggestions on what to grow...can I get by with a lower tech set up? I would prefer to stay as low tech as possible, if that is possible.
Don't be harsh and forgive my newness to the hobby
