    Planted Betta Tanks
    I've been thinking about starting a planted aquarium recently, and I want to make sure I know everything about planted aquariums.:-D So, are planted aquariums hard to maintain?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Are there 2 light sockets on 10 gallon incandescent hoods? :S I think I might take my 5 gallon back and exchange it for a 10 gallon. Or wait till Black Friday and buy a 10 gallon then, or I could ask for a 10 gallon for Christmas. I'll only do this if 10 gallon hoods have 2 light sockets...
