Wink Roy's new 3 gallon planted tank

So a few months ago, I posted on here about upgrading Royale's 1 gallon to a 2.5 gallon filtered and planted tank. Well as it turns out I decided to get a 3 gallon instead. So here's Roy's new tank. Tell me what yall think.



Yall will have to click on the link cause Photobucket has changed since I last used it. Don't know how to upload photo's to sites like this anymore.





Roy is in there, he's just hiding. :)

Those links were not working, so I took the time to fix them for you.
Next time just copy/paste the IMG code, not the html code. ^-^

Also, I love it! What kinds of plants do you have?

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

There is no heater, but the water stays around 78 degrees without it. Royale seems to love it. Good news is he has quit tail biting. That makes me very happy. He also likes to play around the filter. He makes a game out of the current and then hides behind the filter. He's so much more enjoyable to watch now then he was in the 1 gallon. :)

So I am wondering now, how I can slow down the flow of the water. It seems a little strong. The filter that came with it is non adjustable. Any ideas?

To baffle your filter, you can put some sponge at the outflow, or I read something once about cutting a water bottle in half? I can't quite picture that in my mind. Or I can, but I can't see how that would work well... If you google it you can find out how to do it. Or someone here may have done it already.
Your fish is very pretty!

Unless you do a lot of temp checks I would reccomend a heater.

@ OrangeAugust Thanks! Even though he is a vt but looks like a pk, he is still very pretty. I'll look into that water bottle idea because that sounds cool.
@ Chocolatebetta I do temp checks evey 15-20 minutes, except when I am at school. Besides my parents won't let me buy a heater anyway.
