yes you read it right, i am doing 100 watts/gal over my new 1.5 gallon tank. i decided to make a nano for my office, i do physical therapy in a nursing home, and figured that the patients would get a kick out of the tank.
ok i am doing this project with all WALMART stuff, makes it even more fun
ok, first off, i got the new 1.5 gallon cube and thought that it's 9 led lights would be cool, but they sucked, so i decided to DIY the lighting. i chose 2x 20 watt CF lights that equal 75 watts each. i chose CF lighting because it uses less electricity, so there is a lesser chance i will get in trouble for it, and secondly it emits less heat, which could be a problem. anyways:
the tank stock as walmart sells it, has a nice little filter and light:
and the tank with the lights i will install in it:
i will be doing this hopefully tonight, but a week tops so stay posted.
as for the scape, i will be using HC and possibly some petite nana or somthing in the back, with a few rocks. it will be housing a betta, a couple cherry shrimp, and some ramshorn snails.
any questions or comments, please post away!
