Thank for the info. Guessed the light was crap so I bought the other one off amazon. And I'm going topless.
Do you or anyone else know of an aesthetically pleasing filter I could use? Do they make any out of tank filters with just intake and outtake?
Bump: I'm on the fence about the betta, she seems happy in that tank. I think if it's a smaller tank and its well planted, breaking up line of sight it's ok.
Great point about the size of plants.
