Thanks for all of you who offered advice to me on how to post pics on here from my galaxy s11 android phone, however do to so many posts on this page it is really hard to find the exact response you gave me. Thanks again for posting but if it isn't too much trouble, could you please repost the info you gave me but in a private message so that i may be able to find the info you sent. Thanks again and all the advice is great. the pics of everyone else's tanks are great too. Always good to see other peoples imaginations and betta homes. bye for now all.
This is how Alejandro's tank is at the moment. I am trying to go more "natural" however I didn't realize the Amazonia substrate I ordered has to be cycled. . so he is without real substrate except for some rocks right now. Quite honestly, he seems to be very happy just with all the floating plants and his little mopani wood he has. I had to leave his fake anemone in there because he likes it, and he likes his pvc tunnel too. But mostly, he is all about his floating mess of plants at the surface. (BTW the reason the lighting looks weird is because I have half the tank lit by a small bulb, the other side has an LED light. So half the tank looks yellowish and the other half looks more blue.
Also I used the background with water and river rocks, and for continuity I looked through my mom's old pond rocks and tried to find ones with similar colors. I wanted steel-blue-grey rocks with a couple of orangey rocks. the orange would reflect Alejandro's color but also the background happened to have some rocks that were sort of orange also.
