horsedude Nice Betta, the colourations almost look like they have magnetic propaties. How are the plants doing?
Good luck

Planted some S. Repens since the DHG was pretty slow to fill in without co2. Enjoy!

Basil It really helps. It makes it easier for me to feed my betta, since he doesn't have to fight through the frog bit now. And now maybe the DHG that is in there will grow a bit more now.

I<3<*))))>< Looking nice!!
I was thinking of getting some frogbit for my Flora, but was worried about it stealing the light from the other plants. Really digging that ring idea with the tubing! I'll be doing it that way if/when I add some to the tank.

Basil All cleaned up. Pulled the Pothos plant out and now it's planted in it's own pot and trimmed the roots of my frog bit. Also built a ring to keep it confined and allow more light into the tank. Enjoy.

Basil Yup! It's a great light and it fits perfectly.

andrewss nice spec, I am waiting for my spec 2 gallon to come in the mail and I actually went with the 13 watt clamping light too - good to see you are happy with that setup
10-13-2012 01:01 AM
Basil Well I have no new pics and the light I currently have on there is prefect both in size and power. The spec is currently undergoing some work and I'm adding in some driftwood plus more plants. I highly recommend the Fluval 13 watt fixture. As far as led lights go I have seen one person used this on their tank.

smirkis any updates on this? how's that light working out for you? i'm trying to decide if i should upgrade to that light or get a stronger led light for my spec. im curious to how your tank looks now tho, its been almost 5 months since you posted a pic!

Basil Update - decided to re do the tank. Removed the algae filled DHG and planted some microsword instead. I've got some driftwood soaking currently and will place it in the tank soon. Also put a big Anubias in as well. Enjoy.

Not right now, because all that's in it right now is sand. lol. I have plants growing to go into that tank, but I am waiting on the co2 system.
