Question about 5.5 gallon
So just recently I set-up my first 5.5 gallon. The lighting on it is 1 x 13W CLF (6500k) and I was told it was low light (What would be the PAR?). I currently have some plants like Bacopa and Ludwigia in the tank growing quite well, so is this actually a low-light tank?
I have Excel and Comprehensive but I haven't used it. Should I? If I did, would I need to be dosing anything else? How often a week and how much? As for root tabs, I haven't purchased any. What are some good brands to look into? Can you provide me links?
I turn my tank on at 7 AM everyday (time I leave for class) and I turn it off around 6 ish (depends on what time I get back). Is this too long of a photo period? I have timers but I don't know how to set them up/use them.
Is there anything else I need to do/purchase for this tank to make it a better planted tank?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm still a planted tank newb. Thank you in advance!
