Just started this 4g Finnex tank. Its got a Current Dual Satellite fixture with 2 18W 6700/10000 bulbs. I plan on growing HC emersed until I get a carpet growing, then plant some dwarf hairgrass and add water.

Marko, I am really impressed with your tank. What plants you got in there?
Can you provide your tank details?

2 Gallon Betta Bowl.

Bowl Size : 2 Gallons.
Substrate : Flourite and Ordinary gravel.
Plants : Java Moss.
Fish : Veil Tail Betta(Very Active)
Heater : None
Thermometer : None

What are recommendations to convert this into a full fledged planted tank? Any round lighting fixtures?

Are you really stuck on keeping him in a bowl? How about getting one of those nice little four gallon finnex tanks. They come with a filter & a PC light.

Sorry..I am just not a fan of a fish in a bowl. And he really needs a heater & a thermometer to keep him warm & comfy & free from severe fluctuations.

Yeah, but I really don't have space to keep him in a large tank. The house is really warm(avg 74F). He is really active. He tries to chase me away whenever I am near the bowl. Probably, I will get a mini heater and a thermometer for him. I change his water once a week, so he doesn't swim in filthy soup.

I agree with Waterfaller on the bowl. If you can't upgrade, atleast take that ornament out so he will have more swimming room and get a heater and thermometer.

Wink

The tank is 12" wide, most likely smaller than the table you have the bowl sitting on.{save your pennies... }

Are you guys all running pressurized on your Nano's??? i just got my 5.5 and was going to breed feeders, but a nano planted is starting to sound more interesting. I was thinking of DIY though.

90G - CA community tank (Jack Dempsey, Fire Mouth, Blood Parrot). 8 Tiger Barbs, 3 Clown Loaches, 3 bristlenose Pleco's.
20G (tall) - Planted. 4 neons, 8 rummy nose tetras, 3 ottos.
5.5G - Dwarf Hairgrass playland for Beta and 2 ottos.
