I have this fluval chi tank that I want to use as low tech tank, by low tech I mean just light and heater, since I'll be housing a betta filter is not a must, as long as water changes are made on time (I think or at least that's how I've been housing my boys)

so questions I haven't been able to find a 6500k light bulb for a lamp that I have to lighten the tank, either spot light or fluorescent I need a link ebay or Amazon or any place that I can order online by your own experience, so that you can tell me "I used this bulb before" or "I'm using this" please. second substrate would flourish excel work any other recommendation or I should use just sand

Tank measures 12"L 12"W 13"H if this tank gets successfully set up I may do the same to the other one they both go in my living room so the should be good looking as they're part of the decoration so please I would appreciate your help thanks for reading

Nice, can you keep me updated? I'm planning to end up the set up in a month or less, there should be progress on that time isn't it? Right now I'm trying to grow some flame moss, so I have it with water and a temporal t8 light that I have, but since it's going to be on the living room I really need a bulb for the lamp.

What are the specs of the bulb that you have in that lamp?
