Plant light for a bowl or 2.5g?
Its been a while since I've been by. I rehomed all of my fishes after I found out a lovely surprise that my fiance and I were expecting! However I still have my Nerite Snails. No one wanted them lol. I have three, fairly good sized fellas roaming around a 1.5 gallon bowl I have on the kitchen counter. I filled their bowl with all my extra anubias plants and they have done incredibly well! In the first week I saw new leaves sprouting! This was the first time I had ever had good luck with plants. Go figure, after spending hundreds on the plants, right set ups, lights and nurtrients, losing plants left and right over the past couple of years when I had fish... I plop some anubias in a bowl with no lighting aside from natural light and no heater and they grow like wildfire lol. Its been about 6 months now and they both, the snails and plants have done well. I am however going to be moving them soon as we found a new place to live. I'm wondering how the change will effect everything and where I will keep them in the new place. If I don't have a proper window how will I supply light to the plants? I need some recommendations on proper lighting or where I could even find a light for such a small bowl that will keep my plants growing? Also the new place will be kept much colder and I will probably need to heat them. I wont be able to do both heat and light due to my fiancÚ being very uptight about electricity, so when it comes down to it, I will chose heat over light. Anyone have luck keeping anubias in low light without supplementing light? And how much will it cost monthly to heat the bowl? Please tell me less than $5.00 each month! lol.
