(Removed the background in case it stressed him out, so the back looks a little dodgy until I figure out what will make him happiest)

I found backgrounds stressed my guy out too so I put Velcro on the back of my tank and bought a whole bunch of "flat fats" they are bits of material from my local sewing shopping that are used for quilting that happened to be the same size as my tank so I hem them and attach Velcro and switch them around :) I have a pretty Christmas fabric that I'm switching my tanks to for the holiday season and then they are washable in case I spill water or flourish on them :)

That's a really awesome idea!

It seems my boy doesn't care whether there's a background there or not as long as he gets time with mummy and daddy, after two days of observation, hehe.

glady wanna know if anyone have comment/suggestion? please let me know, because this is the first time I have a Betta.. maybe I should fix some..

He's a HalfMoon betta : http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?feature=mhee
but I don't know if he's a dragon or not..his scale/fin have a metalic Green gradient.. (but I always can't capture it with my camera..it shows different==")

He was sick, looks like due to stress/too many habitat in there..I move 2 of my Corydoras to another tank, he lives with with 3 octocinclus now... now he's all healthy, and his colour is really vibrant..except when he swim next to the output of the filter =___= I don't know what I should do to not allow him swim next to the output pipe... but looks like he's so stubborn, he keep getting closer to the output pipe.. :/
I was going back through pix, and I really like your setup. Where did u find gravel that white? Ans that vase/hideaway decor? I have been looking forever for something similar! :)

Hi, a newbie here from Sunny Manila.

Here's my iQuarium for my very first betta, Tellie. LOL



I don't know if he's a male or a female. I forgot to ask! I'm assuming he's male. This is the tank that I bought. I didn't know much about bettas and I've always seen them in very small tanks in pet stores that's why I bought a small one. (Should have done research first, before buying such a small tank!)

Ater seeing all of your tanks and after realizing he needs more room to live a happy life, Tellie will be upgraded to a finer and bigger suite very, very soon.

Hoping to learn more in here!

I am quite certain you can fill that tank(?) up to about an inch from the top.

I've read it's okay to fill up to 80 percent but Tellie was able to jump out of the container with water around 70 percent level!

I was born in the Philippines! :D But not at the Capitol.. You can get a lid. In a 1/2 gallon, ammonia is going to group up really quickly. Especially if it's only 40%-50% high.

You're a Filipino too? Kabayan?

Yeah, I've read about that. It's what I did all night and even today! I'll look later for a bigger tank, live plants, and some accessories so that he'll have places to hide.

I've already added more water last night. It sits about 75 to 80 percent now.

In the meantime, you can put some Saran Wrap over the top and poke some holes in it. You can sleep better at night knowing it's covered.
