Thought 10 gal was a 20 gal - overkill?
So I apparently thought my 10 gallon was a 20 gallon. It looked that big compared to my other 10 gallons but apparently stupid me forgot to measure it. I set it up as a 20 gallon... ._. This is my first real planted tank and I fear I have done overkill in terms of lighting. Would it be fine if I kept the conditions as is?
Dimensions: 12" high, 20" wide, 10" long
Substrate : silica sand 3-4" layer
Lighting: 2x 60W 6500k compact fluorescent bulbs (is this 6WPG? or 12WPG [overkill] because of the 2 bulbs?) Also, I know that the WPG "rule" doesn't really apply to this small a tank
Fish : 1 male betta, 5 brilliant rasboras, 2 peppered corys
Plants : 1x Fist sized portion of java moss; multiple stems of cabomba; multiple stems of hygrophila polysperma; 1 group plant of java fern
Ferts: none, DIY Co2
The plants seem to be pearling but there is algae growth on the leaves of the hygrophila polysperma and a little bit on the walls of the tank. What do I add/remove? D:. One more question. Could I have a carpeting plant such as glossostigma with this high light?
