Lighting for my 2.5g nano
I have a 2.5 gallon mini bow at work. The hood came with a 15W bulb in it. I recently replaced it with a 10W compact florescent, but the color of the bulb looks way off. It's a pinkish/purple color and looks really dark, I think it might be for coral and not a planted tank.
Can anyone give me some suggstions for lighting this thing? I'd prefer a bulb instead of taking the hood off and using a lamp.
This tank is pretty low tech, I only have an anabius and some java fern in it right now. No CO2 and no dosing, only a little Excel once a week.
If I can get the lighting straitened out I'd like to put some med. light plants in it, any suggestions for something that stays relatively small? dwarf sag maybe?
