Lighting for 10g betta tank


Hi everyone,

I am going to set up a 10g for a wild Imbellis Betta pair. It will be a low-tech with no ferts or CO2, pool filter sand substrate with low-light, hardy plants. I was hoping to find a stylish low-light LED lighting fixture (not the stronger ones for reef tanks, which are more common). Any recommendations?

Thank you,

Mauro

Also, I was hoping to find something more "stylish", may be one of those clip-on fixtures.

Check out elive, they make a very nice smaller led lamp, which is customizable, and even has a seperate channel for rheostat controlled dimming.

Good little lights.

doing a back flip...
Stingray would be fine.
Most clip on types seem to only work best on rimless tanks..
YMMV
