i am in the process of making my tank an all natural plant tank. i have been doing research on the subject and have found different answers as to the correct lighting. im hopiing you all can help. I have an 80 gallon tank, with 5 angels, one is the size of a raquet ball, the other four about the size of a golf ball. i have 10 glowlight tetras, 7 cardinal tetras and a small albino pleco. about 2 inch. my water parameters are good. i do 25% water change every week. i have two anubias ( hope i spelled correctly ) in there now. i know about the WPG rule depending on what type of plants, low , mod, and high light. i am going to upgrade my lights because i only have 1 watt per gallon right now and im want to add a variety of plants that require mod to high light. my question is what type of bulbs or bulb combination is best for growing plants. i am purchasing a four bulb light and i want to know what bulbs would be best. thanx for the help.
