Fluval Compact Fluorescent Aquarium Bulb PCL 13 13W Fluval CF Bulb
Bought this Nano tank for shrimp. I wanted to expand into the shrimp world. I also wanted something that was an all in one set up. It first arrived completely shattered (part skimpy packaging and part careless shipping) but thanks to excellent customer service a new tank was shipped. Second arrived wrapped securely in bubble wrap and in perfect condition. After initial set up I let the tank cycle for a few days. I never had an issue with "new tank syndrome" and the tank was ready to start introducing animal life. The internal filter was very loud so it was switched out. The light is adequate and the CO2 unit is somewhat obtrusive but works well. Ph is hovering around 6.5 with the supplied substrate. My tank has been set up for about 5 months and the plants are flourishing and the shrimp (Cherry) are reproducing fast. I think I'm a Nano tank convert and am very with this product.

Plants are growing great.
I am very pleased with this tank. I set this tank up to house my betta. I planted java fern, java moss, foxtail, hair grass, and water wisteria. I have had the tank set up for less than a month. All the plants have doubled in size. My betta is in seventh heaven. The only criticism that I have is that the light output is not strong enough. I have my tank sitting just below a bright kitchen window so natural light is helping with plant growth. All in all, a nice little tank.
