Hi all, I have a 10 Gallon QT tank that I don't use all that often. I was thinking about setting it up as a grow out tank for some of my trimmings etc while I populate my 55 with more plants. The 10g has a el-cheapo incandescent hood. Would a couple of cfl 6500k bulbs be adequate for this purpose?

I intend to use yogurt cups with STS in them as planting pots so in the event I need to use the tank as a QT I can move the plants to the main tank.

Now that being said does a tank like this need BB? I realize that if I put fish in there I will need to add cycled media from my main tank to do that.

Suggestions are appreciated.
