Yeah, I found mine in PetSmart. I liked the look of it, so I figured to pick it up after making sure the holes were big enough. Half the problem with finding Betta-friendly ornaments is that the small tank sizes ones are often not good for them, but the larger tank versions are....well...large. O_o

Well, it's been about five days, and Borealis is happy as he can be. I had to adjust the water flow on my filter, mind you, and remove the intake tube guard off to get more filtration of the water. Even after a partial water change yesterday, it looked a little off. After leaving it to filter all night (and Borealis didn't mind, he was sleeping near the top of the thermometer when I went out for a smoke at 3am, damn insomnia), his water looks much better this morning, and he's taken to flaring at me and the thermometer every so often.

I might look at getting another 10W flourescent light for the plants though. Not to say mine are starting to wilt or anything, but the plants on the side without the flourescent lighting are starting to look a little wilted.
