Hey Friends , im setting up a 2 feet long 15 inch high planted tank , its goin to be kind of high tech since im using a pressurized Co2 system . I am planning to grow the following plants..

Hemianthus micranthemoides
Rotala macrandra
Rotala rotundifolia
Hydrocotyle tripartita
Eleocharis parvula
Staurogyne repens

I always don't seem to get the lighting right , hence would need some serious advice form u experts out there .

Planning to use -

5 x OSRAM DULUX PRO MICRO TWIST CFL's (23 watt,6500K) under a DIY suspended hood.
