    I converted my 5 gallon betta tank into a dirted, high light, low tech tank. Here are the specs:

    Tank: AquaCulture 5.5 gallon de-rimmed.

    Filter: Azoo 60 palm filter.

    Light: 23W 6500k CFL in a cheap dome light fixture.

    Ferts: Easy green, 1 pump(1 ml) a week

    Plants:
    - Dwarf hairgrass(eleocharis parvula)
    - S. repens
    - Christmas moss
    - Bucephalandra “green wavy”
    - hydrocotyle tripartita japan (a single stem)
    - Ludwigia Repens “rubin”
    - Frogbit

    Here it is when I first planted it:

    Here it is as of now:

    LOL :)

    set the camera resolution to 2MB and use a flash. Remember to reset the camera resolution to a higher level after taking/ posting fish pics or all the pictures you take will be smaller.

    How do I do that to pictures that I already took?

    You will need to download or get some image editing software to make images smaller. Your best bet is to take new pictures at a lower resolution :)
