    Yep, that's what most people do. And then get a small clip on light to light it up.

    would that small of an area be an ok place to culture pods? My reason for this tank is me falling in love with a mandarin. I know they require a mature system, and he will not be added until atleast 7-8 months after my cycle is complete. I want to be able to give him plunty of food and was considering making a pod culture. maybe i could kill two birds with one stone?

    I'm sorry to say, but with a tank your size, a mandarin would go hungry from eating alk the pods quickly...but what your could do is find a mandarin that eats frozen foods and pellets. That way he'll have a great chance of survival.
