I have that tank, and you need >15w, tubular.

Try what I use:
Theyre from walmart, $5-$6, from a company called lights of america. Theyre florescent, so they not only help grow plants, but theyre a nice, bright white light in color. In that tank, the light is placed in a way that this kind of light looks really good.

Theyre 10w, tubular and 6500K, a great excuse for live plants! lol!

I just set this tank up for my new King Betta. His name is King Neptune ( Neptune for short) When I picked him up at Petco he could barely fit in the cup. He is easily 3". Awesome fish and I just love the short fins. The tank is a Marineland 5 gallon Cresent with a rock and 2 anacharis plants. I am trying to get some better pics

I have the same tank. I did not put it up yet. How much did you pay for your tank?

Got it on sale at Petsmart for $30.00. The only small issue I have with it is the filter. When you put your filter media in and start using it upstream of the media the water is right on the lip of overflowing the backside of the filter. I am watching it to see if it happens. Other than that I like the tank alot.

Consider getting some aq sponge and putting it behind to buffer the flow? Many filters have a breaking-in period before their power beings to lessen, for the better. My marineland filter (different one, though) did something similar, though in time began to weaken just enough to get better.

I like your set up! If the anacharis likes the tank, it will grow like crazy, and you may soon have a forest! :) Snip off with your nails any 2inch+ off shoots from the main plant, and theyll just grow and grow and get nice and long for you. Allow the little guys to float while the grow.

That's a really cute tank. Do you have a cover for it? Because with as big as your betta is and as high as the water level is he could jump right out.
