First, let me say THANK YOU for all of the great information on this site. Kenpachi (a male blue VT) also thanks you and says that he is much happier than he was at the pet store on Thursday. He is in a 2.5 Mini Bow aquarium with a heater, a couple of hiding places and a bunch of live plants. I'm working today on either baffling the filter that came with it (it does not seem to be adjustable) or replacing it with a gentler one. I also would like to replace the 15 watt incandescent bulb with a fluorescent one if I can find one that will work: looks like a standard base, but the bulb has to be skinny enough to fit in space provided. I am wondering what brightness bulb I should get. I would think that a 15 watt fluorescent would be too bright for Kenpachi, but what do I know? The plants all have low light requirements so I'm not worried about that.
Thank you for any suggestions,
