Here's the best pics I've been able to take of my aquarium. It's only 1.5 gallon but the filter does 100 gallons and hour. The water's a little cloudy because I stirred up the gravel putting in the flower pots. The fish is a male betta (Siamese Fighting Fish) and was just put into the aquarium. The green is live Java Moss and minor algal growth on the sides of the tank. It's lit by a single 10Watt Compact Flourescent 6500 degree Kelvin lamp. The water will clear to near crystal in a few hours. There's also a single Ghost Shrimp in the tank, the second one died just tonight.
PS: OH! His name is Yurei. That's Japanese for "Ghost"
I had to diffuse the outlet water from the pump to make it calm enough for a betta to live. I was inspired by this DIY project on Instuctables.com (I LOVE this site, I get lost on it for hours.) My diverter is different in that it's mostly submerged, open on the right AND left sides, has holes, and spiral grooves that reduce the current by twisting the water to use up the energy of the flow.
