Yep, pump is on low. I'm going to give the Betta a couple weeks to get stronger, then see how he does. Hopeful the plants will start to recover by then. They've only been in for 10 days. I am having trouble with a few of them not staying planted - so maybe a lower flow for a little bit will allow them to establish some roots.

Plus it sits nicely on the lid too
edjonaso: do you find running co2 is neccessary with that light? id like to upgrade my lighting as well but dont want a light that is too intense where id have to supplement co2 and ferts to keep balanced. trying to keep my spec v as low maintenance as possible. thanks
I'm not quite sure about this, I did however run this light on my tank for about a week without the CO2 setup and aside from minor issues like some algae/diatoms on the aquarium glass, everything was fine. I guess it all depends on your light duration maybe? I kept the light on for 6 hours a day when i wasn't using CO2, i was worried about algae bloom. The fugeray is meant for low-medium light setup after all.
the CO2 really boost the plant growth though, and I've seen some of the plants pearling
I picked up one today at Petco as an upgrade for my evolve 2 gallon RCS tank. I'll post some pictures after the water clears completely. The stock LED light is a bit weak, so right now I just have Anubias, Cryptocorne, java moss and windelov java fern plants.
