White cloud minnows work great too :))

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Wonderful suggestions everyone, thank you so much! I really appreciate all the information you shared!

My tank has yet to be decorated and filled with all these pretty fishes. I'll post pictures up once I've set it all up! I'd like for it to look like a coral reef aquarium. A "faux coral reef" aquarium since I will be putting freshwater fishes in there. I just think It'll look pretty and will give the fishes lots of hiding places. :)

Again, thank you everyone! And please keep me posted on any tips and suggestions you might have for my on the process 38gallon tank. I'll appreciate it very much since I'm quite a newbie on aquariums.

Careful with coral decorations. A lot of them have sharp edges that will rip up a Betta's fins There are plenty of fake corals you can buy along with fake anemone. If I ever buy another tank(which I know I probably will haha) I might go for a salt-water look for a Betta XD That or I am buying a 5 gallon tank and getting some dracerna(lucky bamboo).

This website has plenty of high quality coral-like docrations along with silk salt water styled fake plants

Clark - Red and Light Blue Veil Tail male. 10 Gallon(African theme)
Drama Queen - Dark Blue with some silver Half Moon female. 5 Gallon(Buddha, jungle theme)
Poseidon - Flesh color, silvery blue and red Crown Tail male in a 5 Gallon(Greek Theme)
Evee - Violet and blue femal with a black stripe. Veil Tail, in a 3 gallon(My daughter's Betta, Ocean Theme)
Betta Betta Betta Sorority Tank - R.I.P., only two survivors

I only do weekly water changes. I know I am a horrible person
