|CryptKeeper54||Just had to decrease my tank count from 5 to 3. It was time consuming and I started to neglect this tank. Plus, the wife was getting on my case..lol.|

Sad to hear that. Was it anything technical or, as you hinted, just time away from the tank?
I was hoping to see how it turned out. I really liked your DF!

|andrewss||Do you have the stock filter setup? If so it probably has too much flow, consider getting the pump less powerful with some DIY solution or perhaps just get a ball valve setup in the hose pump that way you can adjust the flow down a lot|

My betta is far from a king. My betta is one lazy fish. He doesn't like to swim around much and sometimes it looks like he just lays on the ground...lol. Maybe he hates the current in this tank.

wow I love your spec v... great work - I bet your betta feels like a king in that tank!
I've had a spec v now since july and love it - it was my first tank and I kept the stock light but went with low light plants so it has worked, though nothing is growing like a weed - but all seems happy.
I have a spec (2) coming in the mail this week along with many other goodies to trick this out and cram all the additional knowledge about the hobby I have learned over the past few months - it will be a planted betta tank
anywho, love your tank(s)

I had to change out CO2 ingredients, so I thought I would clean the tank and take some pics. Only 18 days, and the CO2 started to die out using the manufacturer's recommended ingredients.
Plants seem to be responding great with the addition of CO2. Since my original setup day, most of my crypts have melted away. Hope they recover.

|tiggity||Your tank looks great! Awesome use of the Marineland LED|
|10-05-2012 08:41 AM|
Decided to go with the marineland double bright LED 18"-24" light. A match made in heaven, looks awesome IMO. Added a Nutrafin CO2 kit. Going to use the supplied packets for now. I was going for the cleanest look possible so decided againts the soda bottle DIY setup (which I remember doing 10 years ago). Time flies....anyways, here's a crappy phone pic for now. Hope my crypts grow back in well.

|CryptKeeper54||Ligh crapped out yesterday. Started flickering and now it looks like its putting out 1/10th the light output. Looking for alternatives online. Any suggestions welcomed. Want to keep this a low light tank, no co2.|
