    Not sure if this belongs in the plants section or the lighting section but anyways:

    I've been researching different types of plants for my future ten gallon but they all need different levels of light and I'm not sure what level my tank qualifies as.

    If its a ten gallon with a 14w t8 bulb what level of light would it be and how long should I leave it on for?

    You have low end lighting, so anything not requiring CO2 should do fine in there.
