Actually, VTs only have 2 rays splitting. Ever.

I can never remember if I'm breaking a rule by posting other pages, but this is to give credit where it is due.

Why don't you use a desk lamp or something for a light? It would due a lot better than sunlight. Sunlight is difficult because it's going to heat your water up very fast which is harmful to your girls.

Also yes, you can just take the base off and let it float. You can also get something like this from your local craft store/wal-mart: http://www.joann.com/66-grape-ivy-ga...prd_01786839a/ or http://www.joann.com/mini-english-iv...prd_09749698b/ or http://www.joann.com/15-maidenhair-f...prd_09749706a/ and then just make sure there are no metal bits in them, take off basses if they have them and float them :D

EDIT: I stand corrected then about the VT's, nvm, thanks for the info! And you can post pages, just not other forum threads.

I've seen people leave the base with their plants, as long as it is light enough to keep floating at the top of the water.

A desk lamp? Would a reading lamp work, too? I'm pretty sure I have one, I would just need to get it a new bulb.

It depends on how big it is :) I mean, since you don't have plants you don't need something super strong. But some light would help your girls regulate themselves, otherwise it will be a cloudy day for them all the time! That wouldn't be fun :)

Good point. I have to try my best to not be lazy for this tank, because I really want it to work out as best as possible. :v I don't even know when I'm going to get the new girls, but I've been changing the water on a daily basis to make up for the fact that I've been lazy with my water changes for a while (something I'm not proud of). This would probably be a lot easier if I had a job, though...
