Hi.
I'm in the process of gathering items together for a new tank. I'm getting a 2nd hand Fluval Roma 200L tank with a 12.5w aquasky light. Reading around, I don't think that will provide enough light for a moss carpet. As a result I was thinking of setting it up with low light plants and would love to know how easy it is to add more light demanding plants at a later date when I can find the cash to upgrade to a more powerful light?
Any tips or directions to relevant threads much appreciated!
Than you.

Hi Dave, I have a second hand juwel 180. I bought an overhead light bar instead of the old, original light. I can save energy and I ve got a great light for the plants. Also good solution if you like to keep your original light, to buy a led strip bar light and use them together, I think. Other option, use the mosses on woods and rocks, just lift them up closer to the light.
