Hello everyone, I just joined up because I just got back into aquariums and such. I finally had an extra open area in my dorm room for a tank so I went out and found a really great deal on a used 26 gallon bow front. I also have a 5 gallon hex set up in my dorm. I wish i could go bigger but I am already exhausting all the room in my dorm (plus I'm not supposed to have a tank over 15 gallons in here :) ) Anyways I just snapped some pictures for you all because I know you probably like to see other peoples tanks.

I have 1 betta fish right now because Im really trying to get everything set up... this is my first time seriously trying live plants. They haven't died after 2 weeks so I dont think I'm doing too bad. I have a 10W CF light on my 5 gallon and I fit 2-15w tubes over my 26 gallon... I still dont think this is enough light so last night I bit the bullet on a 65w 24" CF light. That should give me plenty of light for my 26 gallon :) I'll have to get some pictures when it comes (hopefully these plants will start growing like crazy then). Anyways enough rambling. Here are the pix!

Any suggestions/feedback is great!

I adore the tank with the betta in it; I'm utterly jealous. Where did you acquire yours? Gorgeous set-ups.
