How long have you had that set up? I'm surprised they're doing fine without a good light hood. Looks great though!

Chocolate, you want 2-4 watts per gallon and you should use 6500k bulbs. Type of light is just as important if not more than watts.

Without it they would overpopulate.

I am new to Bettas since I was asked to take a newly acquired Betta for the winter as he was not being heated and then the store owner where he was kept decided to turn shop's heat off at night. When they saw how well is being cared for, he was given to me for keeps! Anyway, he is still in his upgraded temporary 1 gal. I am doing a widow placement for supplemented natural light also. I now have a Fluval 5 gal,(got first) Fluval 2 gal side by side on one windowsill. A Marineland 2.5 gal and his bowl on other windowsill. All live planted. Working on my plan.
