Here are my two low tech tanks. Basic filtering and 1 of 2 tanks has a heater, both are lit by a 10 watt fluorescent light.Attachment 89978. Attachment 89986 Attachment 89994 Attachment 90002 Attachment 90010 Attachment 90018 Attachment 90026 Attachment 90034. The above tank has 1 Betta, 1 albino Cory and about 7 grass shrimp. Just added lighting and a 7.5 watt heater. Plants are water wisteria, dwarf hair grass, and some random spiked plant in front of the geode. Has been without proper light and heat until today. Dosing with liquid co2, flourish liquid frets, root tabs, and flora max substrate tank has lived for about 6 months with one complete water change and 2 partials. Recently replanted with flora max 2 days ago

Here is the second tank. Same frets and liquid
Carbon as the first tank, about 8-9 ghost shrimp, Anubis, java fern, cryptocern, anarcharin or whatever they are called floating. Crypts are experiencing melt due to recent replanting :(. Also there are 3 white cloud minnows. Attachment 90042 Attachment 90050 Attachment 90058 Attachment 90066 Attachment 90074 Attachment 90090 Attachment 90098Attachment 90106 Attachment 90114

On the heater directions it says not to keep near AC, heat, or light sources. But if most aquariums have lights, how do you not have a light on the tank that has the heater? Here is the light and heater I have Attachment 90122 Attachment 90130 Attachment 90138. That is my bowl where i throw spare plants and whatnot. And this is my finances tank, I set it up, and every fish we've had (2 so far) died. It was cleaned before both fish, uses the same water as my other tanks, and water parameters are fine. Going to tear it down and make another planted tank. I guess fish don't like plastic plants...Attachment 90146 and my cat, cuddling with his little panda :)

Nice I like that stone in the betta tank

Thanks :) I was gonna put two in there but that would have greatly decreased space ( I have a set of 2 I bought for bookends) but the fish need room to swim haha

Also, does anyone have a reccomendation for a light cycle with this light and these tanks, like how long it should be on and then how long it should be off? Or can it stay on 24/7?
