Thanks for the heads up, I'll proceed with caution. What are you using for light? Originally I was going to use a lamp and ~13W CFL, but I prefer LED and a slow sunrise/sunset. The sudden lights on or off is pretty brutal. I've been looking for timed dimmers that can control lights, not sure what's on the market though.
I have the 13 watt cfl in clamp lamp for a light-works fine for medium to low light plants. Can't offer any help with dimmers. I agree its brutal going from bright to dark especially since these are on my desk (have a 7g cube too) and my main light when on.
Btw, do you have any pics of your Betta in the bowl? 😄
I'll take some shots from today-tank is in transition period so not pretty, also dig up some old photos from previous half giant betta.
Currently just have some big anubias wrinkle leaf and floaters along with a big piece of wood (hiding equipment). Anubias will get moved to a vivarium in the spring. Not sure what I want to put in there next..
This is Titan, hes' supposedly a half giant but so big and not full grown yet I think he may turn out to be a true giant betta.
A few years ago over grown with flame moss, n. Taiwan, and water sprite
Inhabited by André at that time (named for André the giant)
About a year ago same tank, André still in there with big crypts and sag. he as a marble gene betta so blue/black took over the white/flesh color of his body and fins.
