Hello, I have a few questions regarding my 20 long planted tank. The has been set up for about a year now and about 6 months with anubias and amazon sword. Heres the specs so far

Filter- 2 Aquaclear 30's *Will be updating to an Eheim 2215
Lights- 2 20W CFL 6500k can change the distance to the water level
Ferts- Thinking about EI dosing 2 or 3 times a week plus water change

The plants are undecided I am wanting to do something that looks like grass possibly Dwarf hair grass, but I am not sure if my lighting is good enough. For Co2 I might do DIY then possibly Paintball. Thanks for reading any advice will help me a lot.:)

I personally think that hirgrass needs closer to 3 watts per gallon rather then your single watt per gallon ratio. I have had great success with DIY co2 but they are a pain. One thing you do have going for you is the 20 long, since they are shallow the lighting will easily reach the plants so you might need less lighting.
