I just set up a 1 gallon nano, or is it pico, today. The light is a 9 watt mini compact flourescent. It said on the box that it was the same as a 40 watt incandescent lightbulb. I don't know if it will work...I already put in 3 small java ferns today from my main tank. The filtration is a Red sea nano filter. any suggestions?

I have 4w CF over my 1g. Everything in sig doing ok. 9w would be "high light" I think.

I have 7watts over my ~0.6g tank. I would consider it to be low light...but that is just me.

It looks like it will work. Today I put a small c. wendtii in. What sort of heater should i use? are there small fully submersible ones on the market? I have heard about the heating pad method, but i don't think i would want to use it. My room gets pretty cool in the winter..

you can get 25 watt heaters that are only about 6 inches long, or some places have betta cup heaters that would probably also work
