Spike, Thing 1 and Thing 2 got a water and a bit of a scenery change today. I was under the impression that these shrimpies aren't supposed to be aggressive....Thing 1 attacked the gravel siphon o.O

Regarding the Fulvas, I *think* you can actually level an inch of open space at the top. Filling it completely just gives the tank the complete "water cube" look.

walmart sells a 5 gallon with a lid with a light, and a filter for under 30$ after tax. not the most amazing, fuval quality deal or anything, but its what i just bought and i like it. the lid is cheapy, but i like it. feeding hole is small, but easily removable lid. or flip back if you have a wall there. plenty of air space, my betta seems to prefer going to the hole ive got the heater and filter on, but i put his leaf under the little hole for the light cord. (edit because i didnt notice you said you had a heater and filter. was telling you about a cheap heater and decorations)

my two five gallon bettas-


and



baby blue and houdini too :)

^ +1 My anacharis doesn't grow that thick!

I found 2 decorations at Petsmart today and added one to my 2.5 gallon! That one was $4.57 and I got this nice looking coral decoration (no pix yet D: ) which was only $1.47! They screwed up the price tags so the manager gave to us anyways for the mistaken price; it was supposed to be $6.50!

Anyways here is the newish setup :P Its the palm tree decoration btw :D

I haven't added the other decoration to any tank yet; I am saving it for my future 2.5 gallon that I will be upgrading to from a 1 gal.

Spank ya!
I'm STILL surprised at how long it has grown. Believe it or not, that is 4 long stems bunched up. But their SO long!!! Over a foot long each!
And my shrimpies have done an EXCELLENT job on nomming up the algae that took over my plants. My Wisteria barely survived. I only have 1 piece of wisteria growing. I'm hoping I can save it.

I got my 5 gallon at Walmart, it came with a hood w/LED light and a filter for around $29.

Check craigslist too, there are always people giving away/selling tanks for cheap.

This is probably a stupid question, but does anyone know if it's ok to leave the blue lights on at night? The tank is on my nightstand & I'd kind of like to use it as a nightlight. :)
