So, I was having problems with cloudy water, and I never made the connection that misplacing the moss ball after a water change could have been the reason. Finally got a new one and the cloudy water is totally gone. If you do not have a moss ball, I highly suggest you do it. It makes a world of difference.

I got my Vita, set it up, bought a Betta and that Betta died unfortunately. How do you I go about getting the Betta that was included with my original purchase?

Well, now that it's getting cold I need more out of a heater. The one that came with the tank isn't getting the job done. Has anyone had success with another one that you can set to a specific temperature. I want to be sure it's a quality one and doesn't burn up my betta. Obviously it needs to be small as well. 

Anyone else notice tiny clear worms climbing on the wick?..

No water changes since the beginning. Anyone else doing this too?

Hi guys,

Has anyone else noticed a decrease in light intensity for the tank light? My plant light is just as bright as ever but my water light is so dim now, it's a little depressing. The light isn't in the water so I'm not sure why it has died. I thought LEDs last practically forever.

Is anyone having luck with the Desert Rose Plants? I already had to toss one seedling that wouldn't become more than a stick, and these two have been at the same growth for many months.
Also shown is my buddy Tyler, he keeps me company in my cubical. He is always pissed off. I've never owned a betta before, but I feel like I got one with an attitude problem. When coworkers visit, he puffs up his gills and charges the tank. Also hates the color red. So weird.

I've had my Vita now for six months, and I love it! It's been a delightful addition to my desk. Ignacio loves it too! I re-potted my Desert Rose, and planted the Pachypodium about a month ago. I am having better luck with the Pachypodium in the Vita than the Desert Rose. I have found that doing 50% water changes every two weeks has kept the tank water nice and clear. Ignacio is such a funny little fish, and he's become popular around the office. And, I get a lot of compliments about how cool the Vita is.

My lights aren't working properly with the 12 hour setting. I turned them on last Monday at 5:30am. They are just now going off at 10:30pm a week later. Has anyone else noticed a shift in their timing?

I wonder if this would grow in the Vita? http://www.glowingplant.com/
