Hi all.

I have just bought a 10g Deluxe kit and am looking to start a nice little Planted tank

I would like to know which 18in plant light I should purchase to get the proper amount of growth I am looking for.

Also which substrate do you guys prefer?

The tank has yet to see water as it is brand new.

Also any reccommendations on the types of plants that do best in this small environment? I do want to have grass to cover the bottom btw.

Thanks!

I think one of the factor for choosing the right lighting is, what type of tank do you want. Very generally speaking,

<- slower growth ----- faster growth ->
<- low tech -------------- high tech ->
<- less maintenance ------ more work -> (affect your schedule)
<- $$ -----------------------$$$$$ -> ( affect your wallet)
<-- fun/better (personal choice) fun/better ->

I found this post very useful to me
