| | Is this sufficient lighting for my newly planted tank?
Hey! Thank you for any suggestions or critique given!
So I’ve recently planted my first tank with some eco complete as the substrate and no CO2. All require low to medium light. Its a Marineland 10 gallon aquarium(Bio-Wheel Kit) which uses a led light bar/hood combination(said to produce 6k).
I realized I needed more light and purchased a Marineland hidden light bar which I have attached to the hood. I believe together with the original Led mounted hood it provides 12,500k of white and blue lights.
Is that enough for sufficient plant growth?*
In case needed I have a few bacopa carolianas and Stellata Octopus as the background plants , Alternanthera Reineckii Rosanervig in the midground, and Cryptocoryne Parva*as the foreground. Some Mini Pellia Moss is also attached to some of the hardscape.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
