Hello everyone. :)
I have a 5gal Critter Carrier that I'm going to be putting my betta in, right now it's being cycled (the shrimp method) so there's not a huge rush I just started 6-6-2011, so about 4weeks (approx.) until I add the betta.
In this tank I plan on having live plants to look nice, provide stimulation (growth/change) and to absorb dangerous chemicals (or whatever you want to call them) in the water. The thing is that because it's not an actual aquarium I don't have anywhere to put a light on top. So I was thinking about just putting one of these light bulbs in a desk lamp and leaning the bulb holding part over the aquarium during the day (or whenever I set up the routine) and then at night I may just use it for studying. (I'm going to be a college student)
Would these be a good idea? If not can you suggest something else that would be? Thanks. :)
