Hey, tank looks great
Is that an aqueon 2.5 by any chance? I just picked one up myself, hoping to get it running next week.

What light are you using? Having a hard time finding something cheap :/

I have no idea what brand it is, it's the 2.5 from petsmart that comes with a glass lid. around $15

and uh lighting... a $5 student lamp and a $4 23w 6500k cfl
dont believe you can go much cheaper than that :P

Oh no! (or maybe that's good if you're looking for population control...? ) I'll wait then until my bee shrimp are a bit bigger then before getting a betta. :smile:

Yea i know i can go really cheap with a cfl desk lamp, but the tank is going in a bookshelf so its tight above the tank :(

Your tank has given me more confidence that i can make a 2.5 work nicely though :proud:

aokashi 11-25-2012 01:32 AM

amazon sells 12.5in strip lights that accomodate a 13w CFL :O

unless ur going hightech... then IDK :P

Beautiful set up. I been thinking of adding shrimp to my 10 gallon betta tank.

GMYukonon24s 03-17-2013 02:14 AM

I liked the sand, it gave off a jungle island impression. With the Betta being a pirate captain and the shrimp being his scurvy crew.
