Is the light the little gooseneck one with the suction cup. I wonder if you could use it on a timer.
I am thinking of getting some for my little tanks, and for my breeder boxes.

I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.

Yeah it is the gooseneck one. and i ended up putting it on a timer so really for $12 plus shipping and a timer i had laying around the light is perfect for the bowl. The plants in it already are responding well to the change in light

Pleased to see the bowl is going well with the new LED. I really enjoy the ones I've got. They're perfect for bowls and small tanks.

Would be ideal for tiny cubes like I've got (see signature). And if one really wanted to make red and brown Crypts pop, they could use a red unit in conjunction with the daylight.

I think there is a few of us with almost the exact bowls and they are thin glass

What now?

Sorry it happened to ya but a good reminder to handle those bowl gingerly

I was shocked I had picked this bowl up like this many times. I must have just angled it just right. I had added all the shrimp to my ten gallon which had shrimp plants and snails already so I guess I'll just add three plants from the bowl to this tank until I get a new bowl.

May they rest in peace...

On a brighter note, can't wait to see what you do next
