The betta seems to have gotten comfortable with it. He found his way to the new tank within about 10 minutes, and stayed there most of the day, then went back to the old tank (maybe because the plant he likes to sleep in is there). Now he somewhat frequently moves back and forth though he seems to like the old tank a little more (maybe because the new tank is empty). I want to put a thing or two in there but do not want to crowd it and the other tank is pretty crowded. I would like him to keep the swimming around room.

Talking How does it all work?

I know you already explain this but can you put it in simpler terms? I really want to do this with my two 1 gallon tanks but I'm not sure how to do it. And what kind of tube did you use?

Any chance of getting a video of this? I'd love to watch it!

I've seen these but usually called a tank bridge and made with much stronger/more rigid material (thick acrylic or glass). The main issue with these is lessened oxygen in the bridge and filtration/flow between tanks.. but that's more for larger tanks. I'd seen a very cool thread on another fish forum for someone with a 30g and 40g community tanks with a several foot bridge at his desk (tank on either side of him). Was quite fascinating to read on.. I was sure my husband would want to make a bridge after he saw the thread to.

My comment about the material was for the OP photo of thier bridge. I'd seen that video before when I was tempted to connect my 2 10g tanks.
