I do not presently have a betta, I am waiting to get one and a new tank. I went through and looked through this thread, as I am considering doing another planted tank. Here are some I had in the past...they were constantly changing!

Thank you. It was a constant job keeping them nice, and they were never as nice as what I wanted. They would look good for a while, then not...it was way more frustrating than pleasurable because I got carried away and had tanks plugged into every socket! My DH wanted to strangle me. Now I have birds lining my walls...he can't win.
To answer the question of the person from the other thread, most all of the lighting was always T-5's.

On the question of CO2, the only tank that used CO2 was the 20L in post 272. I hated it, as the fish I like to keep were not doing well with it. I still have my set up, but I do not think I will ever use it. I did use excel and ferts. Lighting was all T-5's. Some of the smaller single tanks may have been CFL's. Thank you!

T-5s are the best for growing plants right? I saw a T-5 on craigslist for $25 is that a good price?

It depends on what kind it is. Some of the coralife set ups are rather inexpensive. You want to know if it works of course, and if it is due for a bulb change, which is most likely. The bulbs have to be changed often.
