Thanks to those who replied with their suggestions
They probably lied about the hood, they don't call them Local FISH stores for nothing
Most hoods in LFS are barely enough for viewing the fish let alone growing plants. What type of hood did they sell you and how many watts is the bulb? As long as you got about 1.5 wpg you should be able to grow some low light plants.
