Very classy tank. Glad to see you put so much care into your betta's home.

Lovely setup! I'm looking at getting just that tank when I have the room (I was actually just looking at it today while in Petco). You've given me some great ideas. And welcome to the forum!!

Wow, I never expected so many responses! This is a really hoppin' forum. ;p Thanks for all the compliments, guys!

You guys guessed it-- it's a Petco bookshelf aquarium. I swear these things are like betta heaven. I don't think I'll ever have another aquarium with traditional tall proportions ever again, either. It's crazy how much extra usable room their is.

And yep, the plant to the left is bacopa caroliniana. I really like it too! It grows fast to keep the water nice and clean, is super hardy and easy to propagate by trimmings and most all, I think it's really pretty. :)

Do you use any liquid ferts?

This is a pretty active forum. One of the reasons I love it!

Yeah, I dose API Leaf Zone and Nutrafin Plant Gro once a week after water changes. Oh, and I also use Flourish Excel daily before lights on.

Your betta must love it!! I sure do!! Nice set up! My plants always die on me, aquatic or not. I can only keep mossball's alive.

Follow your own pawsteps.

Beautiful looking tank you got there The before setup wasn't that bad but you really made it a showpiece.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
