    So I have a 20 gallon tall planted tank that was recently upgraded (in size) and since the move my plants aren't thriving the way they had been in my 10 gallon with crappy LED lights. I currently have a 15 watt, 8,000K, T-8 fluorescent bulb - and I have no idea what any of that means. I have...
