I originally had them in my 5 gallon and they actually grew, I have had to cut the leaves down on them. When I read up about them being safe or not for bettas (my 5 gal used to house just barbs) I kept reading that they will die and the leaves have to be out of water and such. All I was thinking was "wow, why/how is it that mine have survived and even grown!?!" IDK though, I don't particularly like them all that much so who knows, one day I might get rid of them. Thanks for the concern though, I appreciate it.

I had one about that size in my girl's tank for a while. Covered it with xmas moss and had java moss all around the base. All the fish used it, there was a lot of room for them to hide under it. But it kept my water a very unpleasant green color... I love natural looking tanks, but green water bugs me, lol. Had to remove it.

First Post and New Tank Setup

First time posting. This is my new tank setup for Alpha. He started off in a 1 gallon hex tank. I felt that he needed more room and things to do. So here is my 2.5 gallon mini bow with all the plastic plants and a cave. I took the led lighting from the hex tank and used it under the cave for night time viewing. Let me know what you think.

Move the driftwood off center if you want it to be a focal point. Right smack in the middle is for some reason not as good for a number of reasons. I also think it would look better if there is a way you could point it up more?
