Sure. depending on the lighting you may want to stick with lower light plants like the Anubius sp. The good thing about them is that they are slow growers too. Search for Arizona Gardens. They have a huge selection of plants that I used to get ideas on. Awesome little shrimp too as well as a lot of small nano sized fish.

I'm not sure what lighting they come with. I would imagine that with power compacts you would be just fine keeping most mid-light plants in there. Also if you go with an HQI make sure you go with 10k bulbs at the most. 6,500k would be even better for plant growth. With a 150w HQI you could probably keep any plants in it.

If you go for daylight spectrum, PC will suffice in the JBJ. But, of course, LED will be cooler, to the water and to your image.

Well. I think switching bulbs is getting very similar to switching LEDs in price for planted tanks now.

LOL sorry. They are just a great place to get ideas for nanos with all their little cool fish and shrimp!

And yes, LEDs will grow plants as lomg as they are the right spectrum. Usually 6500k and red supplements is what I have seen
