OK, I can't seem to get any plants to grow in my tank. I've tried several different things and plants that most say are unkillable and I can kill them. I've tried fertilizers, new lights (still only 30 watts on a 60 gallon tank), different plants, more water changes, etc. So far nothing has worked and the advice I'm getting is that I probably need more light.

I've said in the past I don't really want a planted tank, just a fish tank with live plants in it so I don't want to go overboard with the light. I've found one I think will work that is 96 watts or about 1.5 w/gallon. Opinions are welcome on whether this is a good light or not for my needs

Sorry should have specified that the new tank is 125 gallons. 72 x 18 x 23 I think. I'm not positive on the height. Two 36", 96w lights would give me 192 watts or about 1.5w/gallon in the 125 as well.
