12" rimless betta cube equipment

Hello Everyone.

I'm trying to go some what budget on this build.
Do you all have specific reccomedations for lighting and filtration?

I have a 12" cube up and running now with a Finnex FugeRay Planted+ light and an Azoo Migon 60 filter. I'm also running a sponge filter but it's a shrimp tank and honestly the sponge is the primary filter and I'm just seeding the Azoo to use for a Betta Tank I'm going to set up soon. But it is the perfect size filter for the tank and pretty cheap and so far it's a pretty darn nice little HOB.

If you aren't planning on doing plants or at least anything beyond low light plants, you can definitely get by with a cheaper light...maybe something like the regular Finnex StingRAY for $26 or maybe give the Mingdak a try for $10. There's actually quite a few $15-$25 options for clip on LED's. I'd probably just pick one that fits the budget that has the most 4 and 5 star ratings unless you need something for a little more demanding plants.
