I am going to try the light over the bowl as well as the bowl outside...The water in the bowl outside turned really brown...Does that mean anything? As much as I don't want to admit I might lose some of them I know I probably will sadly :/
Yeah the rocks felt kind of slimy but the water was really brown looking but no algae that I could see atleast :/ I had a clear glass vase out there for a few days buttt my dogs decided they did not want it out there and broke it lol so I had to start over
Yeah I just checked on it again and the water is just really gross looking and nothing on the rocks ughh am I the only person who CAN'T grow algae?! lol I am gunna set up a little clamp light over a bowl of rocks tonight and see if I can't get anywhere with that
Most clip-on lamps won't take wattage that high...I don't think. I haven't used incandescent bulbs in a while but I think 60 watts is the max most of them will take. Uh, that should work, I think. I'm not sure. I only use CFL's.
Ok I have a lamp type of thing that I had for a snake and it has a 120 watt bulb in it right now I dunno what kind or anything and the other has a 25 watt bulb in it...which would be better? How long does it usually take to get some algae growing?
