It's an Aquarius Panaview 5 gallon tank :) I love the shape of it, and it's acrylic so it's a lot lighter than the glass one I was thinking of getting.

Saki is a copper & purple double tail but he looks nearly black hiding back there

So this is my guy's 5 gallon tank. I grew up raising bettas, but I always trusted my mom to know what was best for a pet... so I never knew that bettas needed plants, aeration, gravel and all that when I was younger. Growing up, ours always lived in a 2 gallon tank with those decorative glass beads, and a castle. No aeration, temperature checks, variety in diet, filter, plants, or even water conditioning. Their water was changed completely once in a while instead of only partially once a week. I guess it wasn't as bad as it gets, but it wasn't ideal either.

So mine has gravel with a few decorative glass stones spread out, 2 silk plants, 1 plastic plant, a filter, his castle, and an air stone (that's hiding in the corner behind the green plant) We haven't needed a heater yet since he's in our bedroom, but I keep a thermometer on his tank and it stays between 79-81. I'm not sure we'll even need one in the winter (I'm Pennsylvania) since our faulty heating system keeps this room warmest in the winter whether we like it or not.

Now my husband loves this guy so much he got a betta, and it's in Saki's old 2 gallon tank... since I got this 5 gallon tank, he's decided to get one for his guy too!
Wow it looks awesome! Love the colors!!

Yes! That's the one I was considering.
Are you using the filter that came with it or a different one?

My 10 gallon planted tank, 3D background (equipment hidden behind background). Have some more plants coming in this week, hopefully it will fill in the tank a bit more.

My 10g, I took out the paper thin falling apart mesh and replaced it with thick plastic art mesh. I then threw on my 17g bow front hood even though it doesn't fit because it makes the lighting 80% better, I used some extra art mesh to block a few small openings at the back caused by the hoods bow front shape.

here's the pic, it looks better in person. both sides have driftwood, the left has a big piece in the back and the right side has a piece of manzanita. Also both sides have a piece of a terracotta pot to use as a hide and a fake leaf(s) at the top to sleep on.
