Is the light the little gooseneck one with the suction cup. I wonder if you could use it on a timer.
I am thinking of getting some for my little tanks, and for my breeder boxes.

Yeah it is the gooseneck one. and i ended up putting it on a timer so really for $12 plus shipping and a timer i had laying around the light is perfect for the bowl. The plants in it already are responding well to the change in light

Pleased to see the bowl is going well with the new LED. I really enjoy the ones I've got. They're perfect for bowls and small tanks.

Would be ideal for tiny cubes like I've got (see signature). And if one really wanted to make red and brown Crypts pop, they could use a red unit in conjunction with the daylight.

A weekly update of the bowl. First picture is some of my shrimp attacking some of somewhatshocked s complete veggie not 5mins after putting it in there.

I was shocked I had picked this bowl up like this many times. I must have just angled it just right. I had added all the shrimp to my ten gallon which had shrimp plants and snails already so I guess I'll just add three plants from the bowl to this tank until I get a new bowl.

Oh crap...
It will live forever on the pages of TPT.

The only way to get over your loss is a quick trip to Michael's. Sorry, friend.

I found a 2 gallon jar for a betta for my girlfriend at target that was amazing. Not a bowl but a cylinder. It has a nice shape is easy to scape and is very thick glass also was only 14$ just something to consider
