Love it!! I definitely want to make mine really pretty and natural looking like this. Once my tank arrives, I'll be taking a PetCo trip to look at some plants!

Btw, anyone know type of scum sucker that does really well with a betta?

Bristlenose or rubberlip plecos stay small and don't bug bettas.

Thanks, Hadoken! =] Water changes seem to stress my guys out a bit, so I'm hoping between a scum sucker in each side and a filter plus a turkey baster for uneaten food, I can keep them to a minimum.

That is an awesome planted tank.. I would love to do one too someday. but With a 75 gallon turtle tank and a 10 gallon turtle tank that need to be upgraded to a 150 gallon and a 75 gallon as the turtles grow Im afraid I wont have room for anything else besides the 3 small tanks I have for my bettas and one frog.. 8( I could do some live plants in the small tanks.. but i would love to have three 5 gallon planted tanks someday.. I currently have a 2.5 gallon and two 1 gallon tanks for 2 bettas and a dwarf frog....

Thank you all for the kind words =) Our newly added halfmoon, Jasper, seems to really love it. He's a fan of wiggling through the Wisteria in the back right.

I'm dying to set up another little gem of a 5 gallon. They're so much fun to plant/arrange. And all the maintenance is a complete breeze compared to the 55. The filler water change buckets for the 55 weight half as much as I do >,<.

But I already have a 55 gallon, 10 gallon and this 5 in my bedroom. Running out of outlets >,<.

Beautiful tank !! Remember that it important to do partial water changes a couple times a week in the beginning with a NPT. Do you have snails and shrimp in the tank also ? I have followed OFL thread exactly and have had no problems. You don't want gas to build up under the sand. Water is like the air we breath. The filter dos not clean the water if I remember correctly. LEt's se aphoto of your fishy ????

I'm doing changes every three days or so. =) Not my first planted, this one is so much easier than the 55. My 55 gallon is Heavily planted.. It's like a jungle in there.

And I do have snails and shrimp in this betta tanl. I actually brought over a couple of assassin snails from my 55 to keep the ramshorn and bladder snails at bay >,>. The assassins are always pulling my my dwarf hairgrass in the 55. Little Buggers.
