What are you putting in there?

bottom dwellers like my guys, Ive found out they prefer me not
to even turn the light on... (its a 'shop light'.. cheap but effective ey?)

..........i found out they'll bite my fingers when I feed them 'lights out'...

they get shy with bright lights.... "gremlins" style...

Evaporation will be a problem with no hood... just a heads up...

I guess if you're going salt you'll need some T-lights for growing.....


...............it all comes down to the application... Peace JT

Fresh water..

if you want to get 'ghetto'... use a shop light with a white 'flourescent' bulb...

"incandecent" grow too much algea....

Or you could go to the T lights....

Im thinking HID's are going to be over kill...

Im also thinking a lid would be good... I took a screen top "reptile" style... and
wrapped it in suran wrap... and taped it up good so now its water proof.... i change
the wrap every few weeks etc... good and cheap :)....

.............here's to spell check... Peace JT

Just make sure your light is grounded and you have a drip loop. Oh and no wires in water lol!
