New starter or ballast for Hagen Glo fixture?

I have two older Hagen Glo fixtures, 24". One's still fine, but one died and I need to find a source for parts to fix it.

Hoping that it only needs a new starter. But it may need a ballast.

I would think this kind of issue might be preventable just by adding some circulation to the tank, by way of a separate pump.

Granted, a Betta won't appreciate too much current, but a very small...

When it comes doing water changes with tiny fry, it's a challenge.

You might try fitting a sponge intake cover over the end of the siphon, just as you would use it on the filter intake. If you...

If a bacterial bloom persists, I find the simplest fix is to flush the tank. Essentially, change all the water in a relatively short time, but do it in stages, so it's a bit easier on the fish.

Wanted Seeking inexpensive used tank stand

I need one of the basic metal type stands. I only need it for a short term, so buying new costs too much. Frankly, I can't afford to spend a whole lot on this.

I've always liked having scuds in a tank with predatory fish and especially with bottom feeders like loaches or catfish. The fish can hunt the scuds, which is good for them, I think.

One nice thing about plants is that they can be very helpful with cycling generally. They contribute some bacteria, they consume ammonia and later on, they consume some nitrates too.

Assuming you have any left, I'd be up for 10 shrimp too. Won't be able to get out your way until the 23rd, unfortunately. I'll text the night before, to be sure.

Looks to me like the start of Black Brush algae. It is, most assuredly, a result of your sudden increase of light.
