I might eventually upgrade to the planted+ 24/7, mostly because of the features, I'm sure the stock light will be bright enough.
Lovely tank and a beautiful Betta!

Julie7778 Hey guys! I just got a fluval spec and want to upgrade the lighting. I'm thinking diy co2 and growing a Monte Carlo or DHG carpet.

So the problem is, I have a AquaticLife t5 HO light fixture, it's bulbs are 18" and one is a 6000K 18W bulb and the other is a 18W roseate bulb. 36W would be a lot for a 5.6g, so I was thinking of having shorter lighting periods. What do you all think? Thanks.

Please upgrade them to a densely planted 10-20g long or separate them out before they get aggressive and hurt eachother.

Amphiprion1 Update of mine. Probably going to end up tossing the Val. It looks great, but even with substrate dividers, it is CRAZY invasive. It takes just a few days for half a dozen shoots to pop up across the tank.



Any suggestions on something to fill the void that works in moderate to low light?
