Thumbs up You've knocked it out of the park!

Wow. All I can say is, The way you've re-evaluated your first attempt at a custom light canopy, and come back to the table with something this well-done is an inspiration.

Nothing to suggest...

If I said need, I mistyped; more accurate would be, "Bettas prefer a temperature of 79-82 deg F." Many people keep bettas in bowls without heaters, but if the temperature falls below 77 or 78, most...
