Thanks! Dwarf baby tears I believe. A week or two ago I was making my rare trip to petco to buy frozen food (can't beat 120 piece frozen foods for $11) and noticed them covering this lava rock in one of their tanks. Usually I would never buy plants from Petco however it looked like a very healthy, well kept tank and I had never seen this plant in any other lfs. I got someone to help me and told him which one I wanted, however he couldn't find the price tag anywhere. Since I was buying the frozen food he ended up giving it to me for free so I was a happy camper
Ballast went out on the shrimp tank light the other week, instead of fixing it though I think I'm gonna test the waters of diy led's with a small fw build, a little practice for the jbj 24 cube. A little expensive for such a small tank, but the plan is to eventually add an arduino and diy auto-dosing system, nerd out with it, so a modular system was the goal.
Called up a computer store yesterday and asked if they had any trash/scrap heatsinks laying around. They were very cool and let me poke through their box of oddballs and take these two for free. Initially I was looking for both the LED and the driver, however since CPU heatsinks are so small I decided to build a heatsink for the LEDs. As for the driver I'll probably use the heatsink on the left, because the driver fits the copper surface area perfectly.
