    Hello everyone!

    This is my first post here, and I'm new to aquascaping, but I have done a fair bit of research, and the folks over at ASW have been a huge help.

    I'm setting up a 65 gallon low-tech, non-CO2 tank with only a few plants, primarily Bolbitis, but I was also considering Anubias Nana.

    My question is: What kind of lighting do I need for this setup?

    I realize it has to be a low-light setup, but if someone could give me some actual numbers on what that would look like that would be great.

    There is a flourescent tube holder already in the cabinet, and from what I have been reading, would I be going with something along the lines of a T5?

    Some practical advice would be much appreciated! :)
