Well i have a 55 gallon currently with nothing in it. It is fully cycled and is going to be a fancy goldfish tank i am thinking 2 orandas, 1 ryukin, and 1 black moore. But I need some help with plants! I am thinking about keeping some anachris and java moss because i have heard its easy to keep and grows fast!. But I am also in the market for a new 48 inch light fixture any recommendations on something under 60 dollars? I have heard I should try to get a light that puts out 110 watts is that correct? Thanks for all and any replys.

Some of the plants that shhh recommended are low light plants that do not require CO2. Goldfish can be tough on plants and substrates ( uprooting plants). Buy a cheap LED strip light - 48 inch for your 55G- You should be able to find one in your price range on the net. Good luck

Get a 48" Finnex Stingray. They're reliable, inexpensive, and have an excellent viewing spectrum. It'll be more than enough light for the plants you are considering.
