Update! Now has driftwood, new higrophila plants, and some emmersed plants (the ones with just the roots in the water) - a cutting of Pothos, and an arrowhead plant. Still not done with it, I want to have a riparium look so I will probably be adding a peace lily and a spider plant as well. Maybe another java fern for the underwater part. Also bought some lily bulbs. Right now they're in another container. I hope they sprout! My tank just looks stunning from around 10AM to 5PM as shafts of sunlight pass through my shutters and pierce the water... Its amazing! These pics dont give it much justice. Oh as for my little guy, well he used to be camera shy but now he's just curious. Hes probably wondering if the camera im holding is a box of food...lol

How well does the desklamp work? I can't get hold of a hood for my tank which means I can't have a light and i'v been thinking about using a lamp but im not sure how much good it will do, do you use a certain bulb?

Well until today the only live plants i had in there were java fern and a cutting of pothos. Both are still alive and both can tolerate low light levels. The bulb is just a $5 flourescent 13w daylight (6500k) bulb I purchased at a grocery store.
