I know I could just go to the tank pictures, but there are hundreds of pictures, and not all are NPT. So anyways I am looking into another NPT, and would love to see yours! So if you could post a pic and say what plants you have. If you can't remember all of them, thats fine. Just post what your remember. Thank you!

I have a green thumb when it comes to potted plants, but not with water plants. :(

My tank is about 1 month old. I am trying to make this into my MTS tank but my little girl likes to eat them so I'm trying to find someone to take her of my hands.

She's pretty. I am suprised no one will take her. Have you posted in the classifieds?

What kind of lighting does it need? I really love the look of it.

I have 3 adds on my and my friend's Facebook looking for someone to claim her for free and if they lack a tank and heater I can supply one for $25.

All NPT require at least a bulb with 6300-7000k kelvin range. And it's a rule of thumb but by no means necessary that you have 1-3 watts per gallon of water.

I knew that. My one tank has good bulb. I just know some plants need more light than others. What do you use for lighting in your kritter keeper? I am looking into a critter keeper light, but am not sure it will fit mine and such.

I just have a desk lamp with a 10 watt bulb sitting on the lid. I have 2 KKs side by side so they both get some light.
