    Thanks for the kind words :D
    In its current layout its been going maybe 3 months +/-
    Plants are java moss, xmass moss, a small lace plant (temporary) and Hygrophila polyserma
    its the final layout, but the moss has a tad more growing to do ;)

    Stil learning though so hopefully my 50l will turn out better than this when my plants arive :lol:

    Twist it in and out mate. Sometimes starts when you remove it but you have to play around a bit. You can use a starter from a strip light in the kitchen if you have one, or atleast I have before. You should be able to get a new one from any diy shop, B&Q or Homebase for example.

    Nice little tank m8.

    Thats an excellent tank, it's not easy to do a jungle style scape in such a small tank

    Cheers James

    Don't you love it when that happens? Sweet little tank, I like the java fern. I can not grow anything with the name Java in it. Everything else is okay, just nothing with Java in the name. :lol: I've got an 8g that's kind of like your tank but it's seemless and has 24W. It's empty now. Only a 10% water change? My fish would kill me if I did so little, but I'm a habitual over-stocker, so I have to do about 25-50% depending on what I feed them.

    the tank only has 6 danionella sp. in the tank that are 14mm adult size and about 2mm thick :p along with shrimps and snails but they make up next to no waste ;)
    stil havnt sorted the light but everything is growing well due to them being low light plants :D
