    Hello everyone,
    I am in the process of setting up a 10 gallon non-co2 method tank, and i have a couple questions at the moment.
    1. I can't seem to find seachem equilibrium locally so should i just order it or use Plantex CSM+B since i'm going to be ordering a fert package since it's cheaper anyways?
    2. I have 3 thoughts for lighting. Which do you all think will be best?
    1. I currently have 2 13 watt 2700k cfl spiral bulbs
    2. 2 13/14 watt 6500k daylight cfl spiral bulbs
    3. 2 10 watt 6500k u cfl bulbs from walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Lights-of-America-10-Watt-Mini-Fluorescent-Aquarium-Bulb-1-ct/10448675

    thanks
    -Jeremy

    I'd just use 2x 15W or maybe just 1 x 15W for a non CO2 10 gal moss tank.
    Typical UNDER COUNTER T8 lights.

    GH booster is generic Seachem Eq.
    You can order it on line from www.aquariumfertilizers.com

    Regards,
    Tom Barr

    well my main point is i still have the stock hood with sockets and i'd like to keep it cheap. once i get more money i'm definitely looking into building a suspended light for it and keeping it topless.
