New To Plants

I've had an original 12gal JBJ Nano Cube running for about a half a year now. The only creatures living in the cube have been families of cherry shrimp. The substrate is eco-complete but I've had only a few live plants in it. Mainly because of failures. I haven't made any adjustments in the way of lighting and would like to know if I should switch out the bulbs for the 6500K bulbs and if so where I can find them. The cube has the original blue/white combo. This is my first attempt at a fully planted tank after years of freshwater and salt so I feel a bit like a newbie! So I'm glad I found this site! Any comments on this and any other suggestions from fellow Cube owners would be appreciated.

Smile Re: Light bulb

You should try to switch out to 6500 or 6700k none 50/50 bulbs. Have you try Dr. Foster?
