Questions about household CFL lights in the planted aquarium
I am starting a 20 gallon planted tank.
I was originally going to go with a t5 HO light fixture.
However, I changed my mind and heard about people using clamp on desk lamps with 6500k CFL bulbs.
The bulbs seem to produce only white light.
I know plants require some form of red light.
So, Can I use a clamp on light(s) put some 6500k bulbs and still grow aquatic plants?
Also, are there different types of light or can I just go to Home Depot and pickup some 6500k CFL bulbs?
