I don't sleep much or do I fall asleep fast when I try, so some nights I do get to lay there and watch for hours, it's really cool how the fish school with the same kind of fish, and all the fish in that tank are peaceful community fish.

Everyone has such beautiful tanks! /jealous


"But Pontos, the great sea, was father of truthful Nereus who tells no lies, eldest of his sons. They call him the Old Gentleman
because he is trustworthy, and gentle, and never forgetful of what is right, but the thoughts of his mind are mild and righteous."


Are you looking for some art of your betta? I do digital drawings for $5-10! Click here to see some examples.

Heres my half gallon npt I got that was labeled for betta tank at Walmart lol.

MTS as the substrate mixed with clay and peat moss. Capped with all purpose sand. Couple of slate rocks I found in my front yard (boiled before I put in tank)

Plants are anacharis, 1 little piece of frogbit, and a riccia ball.



No fish atm water is from my cycled 10 gal tank. Not even sure if I want to add any fish to it. Any suggestions?

you might not want to do fish but looks like a good shrimp tank to me. You probably wouldn't have to even feed them if you have enough algae. Maybe some flakes here and there.

As of 02/02/14: 5.5 Gallon NPT - Plat ----------------29 gallon - Awaiting bleach bombing and selling
46 gallon bow - 5 glass cats, 6 kuhlii loaches, 2 rasboras, 1 parkinsoni rainbow, 8 White Tip Tetras, 1 bristlenose pleco, 5 julii corydoras, 1 bolivian ram, 7 neon tetras , 2 female sunset gouramis, 10 dainty corydoras, shrimp and snails

Oh yeah, shrimps are totally cool. I got one yesterday and they are so fun to watch. I got an Amano at King's but they also have the Cherry ones too.

Amanos are good as they generally grow to big for Betta to eat. Cherries on the other hand become a quick and expensive snack for Betta.

Maybe you need some more floaters like I did. My problem was definitely a combination of too much lighting and not enough water column feeders. Adding the floaters seems to have solved the whole problem for me :) Even killed of my amazing hair algae problem!
What kind of filter do you have? I've tried floating anacharis across the entire surface, but the outflow from the filter forces what's directly in front of it down despite the filter sponge I have in the output, allowing more light penetration.
