Hey!
Does anyone have any lighting suggestions for All Living Things Critter Totes? I ADORE them as a tank for my Bettas :-D But they don't have a light, which I hate!

I used to have this tank: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11164165&lmdn=Fish+Aquariums+&+Bowls

So I stole the light from it, and bent it like crazy to fit it on my tote tank! It doesn't give off much light for my 2 gal tote :-( And I plan on getting 1-2 more totes as tanks for more fish, so would like a light!

I have yet to get my hands on the critter keeper light so I don't know about that but I use a desk lamp to light up the tank with a bulb that doesn't really heat up works well for me

Thanks! I'd rather have a light on the tank, to save room. Dragonfly is ontop of a VERY small book shelf. Would be difficult to fit a lamp on it too! :)
Well if you do change your mind, there are clamp on lamps that work well. Also, you might want to try using a Marina betta light. It's and LED and extremely bright. Good bang for the buck.
