Does anybody have one of these?

I bought ne awhile back, and had it looking AWESOME. Then we went to Missouri for 3 days, and when I came back, the plants were all dead, and so were the shrimp. If anyone has one, can you post pictures of your scape? Also, do you add any light, or is the one that came with it enough?

I have that as a backup for my bettas when i clean out there 5 gallons or one gets sick, as a quarantine, extra. So i haven't any pictures, and find it very hard to scape. I should also add that i use a tetra 50 watt heater in it which works great and i have taken the filter off and added an air stone since the filter doesn't really filter anyways.

A new light would be great, i have scene some people do that and i have wanted to myself but haven't gotten around to it yet. Aparently you can take off the LED lights and hand an industrial type lamp over the tank, that works great, what kind of plants were in the tank for them to die? If they were like HC or something there is no way they could grow in this setup the way it is.

I keep my two bettas in them as they were the right size for the entertainment center shelves. No way I would ever put real plants in there the lighting sucks.
