My aqua start 320 has an 11w PL light in it. Can anyone tell me what this means and what sort of light level this equates to?

PL is another term for power compact fluorescent.

It's low-moderate lighting in your aquarium. Enough to grow most species, especially with decent nutrients.
 
Thanks George 🙂 I've been looking around for suitable plants to go in it. I've got some Anubia nana petit that I could put in and I think Eleocharis parvula would be okay as a background plant. Still looking though. Its quite a challenge doing such a small tank!!

Thanks Darrel, I'll bear that in mind when I come to replacing it 🙂
