      That is really cool, simple setup Joel ... and with such good results it's something I'm going to remember. Is that a standard white LED in the 3500 - 5000k range?

      Thanks Mike! Yes, it's a 5000K "75 watt equivalent" LED bulb. I think it's around 10watts of actual power consumption.

      You can't see it well in the pic, but I have one of those cheapy eBay black sponge bubbler filters in there, in the background. The suction cups didn't work well, so I yanked them off and use a Mag-Clip to hold it in place.

      I feed them Zoo Med spirulina flakes and some miscellaneous pellet foods from my other tanks.

      One weekly ~90% water change on it.

      Some close up photos of the new crystals, cherrys dont really care about them so that’s good they seem to fit right in.

      The crystals are around the same profile as the cherry’s, there’s just a lot of cherry fry in there.
