Lighting for 5.5 gallon

867 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  jersysman

I've searched the forums and found some suggestions of lighting for a 5.5 gallon aquarium. I have a 16" All-Glass strip with a 14w bulb. Is that enough light so that I can grow some java ferns, java moss, some crypts, or anubias? I know that the WPG does not apply to a tank this small and I am confused as to how much light I would need. :help:

I would say that you would be fine with that light to grow those plants. Nothing more though, and don't expect fast growth
Thank you. That's all that will go in that tank. Just needed to know about those.
