My only idea would be taking the bamboo out until it grows taller and once it is tall enough to pop out the top put it back in. That is really the only option besides just getting rid of the bamboo all together.
Well here is Ernies new home! The critter keeper just wasnt doing it so I returned it all including the heater and got a 5 gallon kit and a 50 watt adjustable heater which was on sale for 13.00! I like this MUCH better and so does Ernie:) One thing.....the water flow seems a bit strong how can I slow it down?
I baffled Melvin's filter by cutting a sponge to fit the outflow part and putting a rubber band around it and the filter to hold it in place. Works very well so far.
There is a plastic bottle method somewhere on the forum, I just do not know how to do that one. Good luck! :)
Here is Sinatra's tank. It's a marineland crescent 3, heated and filtered. He has three silk plants, one plastic, a flower pot that he's afraid to go inside, and gravel and glass stones. You can see his huge bubblenest on the left side of the tank behind his plant. Please forgive his poor tail, we've finally beaten tail rot (since the day I got him) and are slowly growing it back.
I've been gathering some stuff so I can turn my plain jane 2.5 gallon into something a bit more exciting. I plan on building it this week and into the next. What do you guys think of this?? Going to have a two little doors on the bottom to store my air pump (for my sponge filter), food, chems, etc. And I have some high powered cree leds to make a nice light on the top. Hopefully everything comes out as planned.
