Yeap.......this hobby is addicting.

Just set up my 4th nano tank over the weekend. Found this tank at local Goodwill store for $7. It does come with an LED light but too wimpy to use it.
Found the filter for a $1 and built the light from scratch from parts at local Habitat store.
Fluorescent Bulbs from Home Depot - Phillips Daylight Deluxe - 23 watts = 100 watts. I use 3 of those.

I like it! I have a 2 gallon cookie jar that has been calling my name for a nano tank. Not sure what I'm going to do for lighting though. I'm thinking about using a desk lamp with a LED. The IKEA LED bulbs do a awesome job growing cactus, so maybe they would work with aquatic plants as well. I'd have to try it to find out. If not, I have other bulbs kicking around that I can try.
