Hi! I'm new here and have some questions about plants.
I currently have a 55g with a Penguin 350B filter, gravel, two plasic/ceramic rock formations, two airstones and a wand, and the following inhabitants: 6 peppered cories, 7 zebra danios, 1 oto, and 2 GBRs. The lights I currently have are two 18 inch, 15 watt, 8000K, T8's.
I have been unable to keep plants alive under the current lights, probably because of the depth of the tank, but I would really love to go planted. Depending on the cost, I might have to just go with the plants found at Petco/Petsmart, but i really love the "grass" I've seen in other tanks.
So, the question is, what kind of lighting would you recommend and is CO2 necessary? I would like to stay under $200-$300 on the lighting. Any information is appreciated.
