I'm new to the idea of a planted tank but have been keeping freshwater fish for over 5 years now. I would like to turn my standard 55 into a planted tank and keep my bigger tanks as they are. I really have no idea where to begin in my new endeavor and was directed to this site by my main fish information site waterwolves. I guess I need to know if buying a light setup from ah-supply is the only way to go. Right now I have a shop light which holds two 48" flourescent bulbs on the tank. With the right bulbs could I keep this set up or do I need to switch to something a little fancier? If I don't need to switch to something fancier what types of flourescent bulbs should I be looking at? Thanks for any help you guys can give.
