Low Tech Planted 10g Lighting
I want to either get new bulbs for my standard 10g, or possibly a whole new lighting system like this: http://www.bigalspets.ca/led-aquarium-hood-20-x-10.html. Are LED's good for plants? If I just replace the bulbs in the standard lighting system that came with this Hagen tank is there something I should look for?Don't poke the crazy

Sarah if you can, go with the LED's. Your ten gallon isn't very deep and even an inexpensive LED light will do your plants well and be more cost effective then other bulbs. It wasn't until I went to a 55 gallon tank that I had to upgrade my LED's to those expensive ones.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

+1 to the above, I have LED's in my 45 with java ferns, anubias & amazon sword and they're growing great!_______________________________________________
