well I just wondering because some people can do it, but after rethink again, you're right, I'll put my Giant Halfmoon Male in a bachelor tank by himself ;) hahaha.. he's still in growing up phase too, still 2 months old... must reallly take care of his Fins. The Salamander female instead,5 months old already...wanna mix her with other 3.5-5 months old female too.. but still hunting for the other 2... it's really hard to find female Halfmoon here :(
Sounds great. I look forward to the beautiful stock you get. Here in america wers over run with female bettas because everyone wants the prettiest male betta and stuffs him into a tiny tank.

envy there :(
here in Indonesia, it's rare to get good quality Female Halfmoon Bettas, the breeders keep for themselves. Usually the Good females are imported from thailands...
the rest are sold really cheap, but the size and the quality are low-standard..

I already prepare the couple..now they're in divided tank..Giant Copper Halfmoon and Salamander Female
for the female I still need 2 more.. (minimum is 4 right? if I'm not wrong..)

I put Sagittaria there..but I'm wondering should I trim the Sagittaria when they're reaching the surface? I'm afraid that the leaves might dried up...

Planting to print a piece of Stone background there :) but not yet finished..

I use fertilizer too, should I use CO2 too for the first time set up?
I use well water...

:O you must be rich!
tank envy.....
*pulls out gun*
your tank or your life.....


XD

really nice tank btw

oh as for your question. CO2 isnt really necessary...you have lowlight/easy plants.
you substrate is a little shallow... you might want to give it another layer for the rooting plants.

in the future i would realllly recommend reading up more on Aquascaping, substrates, plants, CO2 etc and do something awesome with your tank :)

the saggitaria will be fine, when it grows too tall, the leaves will simply bend and follow the waters surface...

1 Gallons like that are awsowme. It was hard for me to keep up with a small tank since my much much larger one does not need attention as often. It was hard for me to keep up with only as few gallons so I upgraded to a nice 10.

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!
Be sure to read up on the nitrogen cycle! Here's a helpful link about what it is, and why it's important. http://www.fishlore.com/NitrogenCycle.htm
