Complete newbie! Two questions!

Hi y'all! I wasn't sure if this should go in the lighting section or general, so I went with general.

I'm naming on planting a fluval chi here really soon (low tech) and I haven't a clue what kind of bulb to get! My current plan is to purchase a clip on lamp and direct the light towards the tank as the build in LED is complete crap.

Currently, I've got black sand on the bottom...should I remove that and replace it with a different substrate or will the black sand be okay?

Thank you in advance!

i avoid lighting because i'm not very good.

that black sand should be fine, i would just recommend you get some roottabs to give the sand (substrate) some nutrient value for your plants to be healthy and happy
