Ok I was just wondering if anyone has ever done this before so I could get some advice. I'm doing a year-long school project and I chose to try to recreate the habitat of the Betta Splendens. So I want to recreate a miniature rice paddy field in an aquarium. The main project will be in a 3ft tank that will have around 5 females but I currently have a smaller version on my desk with one female. The female is thriving and rice were growing very well too but lately, I think they have died because they are no long green and no longer and any structural integrity. I'm using a tabletop lamp as a light source and it is a yellow light, not sure what kind exactly. I'm going to be using a two tube incandescant light in the actual tank. Does anyone know if this will help with the rice growth? I also have a heater in the tank too.
