75 gallon sword tank help
I have a 75 gallon amazon sword only tank, i have a 48 inch hood with 2 24 (20 watt) inch hagen sun-glo bulbs, white pfs substrate, and flourish root tabs. I was worried that the plants wouldn't do too well, but will this setup work?

you will require at least 2 watts per gallon for sword plant growth. your current just barely makes 0.5 watts per gallon. some people have had success with swords without CO2, but in my personal experience carbon supplementation helps tons.
