  4. Lighting
    Hi -- I am brand new to the planted tank and have been reading about lighting for low tech planted tanks for a few days now and I am still unsure what to do.

    Hi Everyone! I bought the first fish tank I have had in a long time. I purchased the 2.5 g mini betta aquarium, and the tank is ok. Works alright, and my betta seems to be doing well (purchased whole set up two weeks ago). I made the mistake of buying the fish and tank without actually...
