Default Re: Lighting question

So that's 38 watts over a 10 gal then. You should be able to grow several species with that light. Rotala rotundifolia (sometimes sold as R. indica), any of the Cryptocoryne sp., Anubias (like Java fern, you don't want to bury the rhizome of Anubias...only the roots...and these do well attached to rock or wood), sword plants (which will eventually outgrow a 10 gal), several mosses, Hygrophila sp.

Check out the Plant Finder and search for moderate light plants.
