My betta's new tank setup! Im so proud of it lol im a first time betta owner! he's got a couple live plants, the rest are fake eventually i would like to replace them with real ones. There is a heater hidden in the back and a thermometer and a snail hiding somewhere. eventually i will get a couple shrimp. the filter the tank came with was pretty strong but the bottle baffler that i saw on here works wonders!

It looks like a perfect plant for a betta to rest on :)

it is! he loves it, before it started growing roots it floated around so that was neat too. My betta loves to rest on his snail when the snail is sitting towards the top of the tank lol

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!
Ohmigosh I love that castle! Where did you find it? My soon to be fish is named Flash too, actually. I won his aquabid auction and am still waiting for the maol to come in. He's named for my school mascot as what drew me to him was rhâ he was my school colors! Didn't think it would be that popular of a name.

the last pic didn't show my 10g tank very well so I took two separate photos of each side.
