    About the only thing I could find that might work for you.

    Just copy and paste this into google. Dee Planted Aquarium Full Spectrum 4 Mode LED Light 45cm

    I'm using a Biopro R.W.B. led a cheapie as well, on the Ryukin tank 2ft tall with no problems.

    What's the height of the tank?
    What plants do you want to grow?

    I used to use Aluminium Sulphate ( pool flock)

    Soak the plants in about half a bucket of water that has up to 10 teaspoons of Alum, the Alum kills microscopic bugs. Longer soaks (2-3 days) will kill snail eggs and/or snails.

    No need to heat the bucket, the warm water is just dissolve the Alum properly and being Anubis you wont have any problems at all.

    On a side note, you can call me anything you like just not late for beer oclock :D
