Just want to share my new 10 gallon desk lamp set up!
After seeing a setup that used desk lamps for lighting I decided to give it a try! This is my second ever tank setup and have made a few mistakes along the way but I am pretty optimistic that it will be a happy environment for a school of celestial pearl dannio and a few cherry shrimp.
So far it is housing 2 echinodoris rose, a few sprigs of limnophilia sessiflora, some ludwiga rupin, Hygrophila 'Siamensis 53B', and a couple tiny pieces of an unknown plant hanging out in front of the filter that came with some shrimp for another tank, maybe bacopa but not sure. I plan to add a couple Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Tropica' in the sides of the middle ground and finish off with some Hydrocotyle tripartita up the right side and in the foreground.
I used tropica aquarium soil covered by national geographic black sand, two clip on desk lamps from home depot with 13w daylight CFL bulbs, and DIY gatorade bottle CO2 just starting to bubble.
I have very little experience so would love any input you all have, hopefully I will post again in not too long with a more lush version to share!
