If you want to grow a wider variety of plants, perhaps you could add another fixture like the one you already have. Have one strip at the front and one at the back.

Here is a 28 gallon tank, with two 24" Aqueon T5 dual lamp fixtures (56 watts in total) The same fixture as yours, just a shorter length. One strip on the front and the other on the back. In this tank, I have anubias, java fern, pygmy chain sword, ammania gracilis, ludwigia, Amazon sword, bacopa caroliniana and a couple of different cryptocornes. This tank is an unusual shape, and is 24" wide, 17" tall, and 13 1/2" wide. The plants are all growing well, with very little algae. The picture is bleaching out the colour of some of the plants, but I haven't yet perfected taking photos of lighted aquarium :smile:

I fertilize once a week with Flourish Comprehensive, and I use Excel daily. I hope this helps!
