Well, I am pretty convinced that I will get them on monday on my break at lunch. I will put them in my half gallon tank till I have time to plant them. I will post pictures as soon as I get it in the tank.

Thanks for all the help... now all I need is a taller plant for that corner.

Okay, one more question ... Is hair grass a good plant for helping remove ammonia from the water?

Re the planting - take little strands with roots and poke them in the gravel with tweezers. If your gravel's not too coarse, they'll stay there.

Not too sure about ammonia uptake. But I do know the fast growing stems like wisteria take up the most.

This how my lights are designed:


I hope it fairs well in my sub-standard turf. Time will tell. :)

Very pretty! I hope it does well. :)

I like your betta's little stone cave, too.

@Atena, what kind of plant lights are those? They look like they stick to your lid, very interesting! Also, that cave of yours is too cute; where did you get it? I'm having no luck finding great caves like that, all I can seem to find are spongebob, beehives, or really awesome ones that are for very large tanks.

Thanks guys, I hope it does well also. For now I like the way it looks.

I got the lights on e-bay, though I did not buy default, I had this set custom made. And yes, they simply stick to the lid, though I sewed them on top of my lid with clear thread to make sure they are a little higher up. This is the place I got them: http://www.21ledstrips.com

The cave I got at Pet Supermarket just down the street from my house. I found a similar one for you on e-bay, but I cannot find one exactly like mine. I was so thrilled when I found it, it was exactly what I wanted.

Atena :)
