Escellent choice, it is both Fresh and Salt-Water tank. Who know maybe you'll like having coral and a Nemo later = D

Thank you!
I have a Hydro 25w and it fits perfectly. The Hydro appears to be a popular heater on Bettafish.com. Maybe check out the size on line?

Ok finally got a pic of mine. I upgraded the light to a Finnex Fugeray 16" and LOVE it! It is so much brighter and makes my guy look so much prettier! I also have the Hydro 25 Watt Adjustable heater and it fits in the pump section perfectly. I still may add another plant, possibly another Anubias but I am pretty happy so far.

I am thinking of adding some RCS or Amano, or maybe a snail, but I can't decide yet lol!

Thank you! I am working on tank #2 now.....now to find the right Betta! It was going to be a shrimp only tank for Yellow Neos, but I love the Bettas too much! <3

I was thinking of yellow neos too, but gave up on the thought of having a shrimp-only tank....

Check out these sites, they are cool shrimp vendors:

What level of lighting would a finnex fugeray 16 or 20 inch put me at on a fluval spec v? And lighting levels for a ray 2 in those sizes..

The Fugeray is solidly medium, probably the low end of high near the top of the tank.

The Ray 2 would require CO2 ... definitely in the high light range then.

After his incident I attatched it using those mini itty bitty hair claw clips, but you could also use a bit of aquarium sealant on the corners of the craft mesh to attatch is, just use small dabs let it dry thoroughly. I believe they sell black mesh too which would match. Just a thought, it worked for me :)
Can you post a picture of your mod please?
