They do. It's called a powerled. Amazon has them.

I've been following your tank's progress and I am interested in growing some Marsilea Minuta myself. Yours seems to be growing pretty slowly though... do you like it?

It's good. Easier to maintain than the HC I had in this tank. I have moved it around one or twice to - each time tossed a small amount out. However, it's not a fast grower and that's a good thing IMO.

Also, my new filter had carbon in it. I just took that out the other day because it may have been soaking up the good plant nutrients slowing growth.

I want to set up a low tech tank and I was thinking this would be the perfect foreground plant. I've seen it grow nice and thick and pictures and want that look. You are the first person I've seen with it in pictures so I thought I'd get your opinion.

-1 amano
-1 pea puffer

Neither one made it.

The puffer wouldn't eat - maybe I should have bought a fat one vs the skinny one.

Anywho, everything else is well.

Tank was overgrown and troubled by algae so I cleaned it out and rescaped. Flipped the wood over and added some elevation.

New growth. Two Honey Gourami added which may be too many Gourami for this tank. Also added an ATO using an Aqualifter pump and timer to control top off and dosing. Right now it's dosing RO mixed with metricide and micros. Algae, is disappearing and tank looks healthier. Not bad at all.

When I started this tank I did not mind high maintenance and monitoring. Now I just want it to be as simple as possible.

Added the stock equipment to clean the clutter around the tank. I have everything inside the stand now. Put a heater on since the house is cooling off.




Will probably sell the fluval 106 filter and lily pipes soon.

Can you get a better photo of your gouramis? At least one looks really too grey/blue hued to be a honey gourami from the photos you have so far. BTW love the tiny see through but distorted tiles in the cabinet door! Make all the stuff inside look mysterious and cool ^^

Had an ich outbreak. I think the new fish brought it in. One honey passed. Raising temps and adding salt. We used this water to top off our beta tank and I think the beta is ill as well so I brought him the cube for qt.

Here's a pick:

I know this is an old thread, but...

Where on earth did you get the light clamp for 12$? I have looked everywhere for just the clamp and cannot find it. I already have the tank and set up, with the powerled fixture, I just need to locate that clamp

Thanks
