My 1st tank

Hello. This is my first tank...and my first Betta fish. His name is Goldie (my 4yr old son named him). I've had him for 2 weeks and I love him. He's very interesting to watch and he's very responsive to me...I think that's what he's doing. He is in a 3 gallon tank, with a filter, heater, thermometer, fake plants and a fake log to hide in. I hope it's a good tank for him.

What a wonderful set up! I'm sure he is very happy, I'm very impressed that you did your very first tank the right way! Kudos to you!

Click for full size pictures.



My naturally planted 2.5, finally blossoming now that it has some fast growing stem feeders. (Thanks to OldFishLady's advice!) The only reason he doesn't have a cave is because of his banana plant; the leaves curve together to make a little natural cave. :) I just bend the leaves under just slightly any time they start to straighten out, cause I like the look. This is home to Connor, the cambodian butterfly piebald crowntail.



The 10 gallon, recovering from an algae bloom. ((It's slowly disappearing thanks to OldFishLady's advice!)) Sorry for the glare, my phone camera's terrible. This is home to the blue (marble?) combtail(?) with a red mask, Sora. Along with his tankmates, six golden white cloud mountain minnows, four julii cories(or possibly three-line, hard to tell), and an assassin snail named Ezio to protect me from stray snail babies. ((I realize I'm a little over stocked, but I'm also heavily planted. I have three baby swords, an adult sword, looooots of stem feeders, and it's an npt, so fish waste=fertilizer.))

Uhhh that's a good question. Haha! I took him in when the petco are in process getting rid of several dead betta fish. Me and my mother walked by the betta section and my mother spotted something and there was a purple betta! My mom said that he's beautiful and I never had seen a purple betta before and I found out that what they would plan to these sick bettas... the petco were planning to get rid of him too so I decided to ask the manager to make a deal and she agreed to sell it for a dollar. (We knew each other because I went to petco MANY times and was a good customer) lol. So I bought him and had a mini journey to Wendy's to eat. He was swimming and checking out what he sees. lol. I asked my parents what to name him, they couldn't think of a name lol. His colors remind me of Unicorn, normally I see unicorn toys or stuff with purple ish color something do with theme. So I named him Unicorn because of his colors. I thought it was kind weird but I got used to that name. My parents loved that name and thought it was cute for my purple betta fish.

thanks....




I have five bettas and I plan to set up a 5 gallon for just Unicorn which is still in the divided ten gallon tank....
This is Unicorn and he'll be living in the five gallon tank just himself.
