I need tank set-up ideas.. post your pictures here!

Ok, here's the thing. In a few days I'll be getting my 5 gallon tank (Amazon just notified me it should be here March 14th!), and I plan on putting a divider in and putting one of my bettas in each side. I've been doing a lot of thinking about how I'm going to set up the tank. Now, I thought long and hard about a planted tank and all its benefits... but I really want a trippy looking tank. I'm probably going to go with some kind of tie dye background, black sand with pink rocks, pink, red and green plants, etc...

I know there's a thread where everyone is posting their tanks, so I'm asking for more retro tanks. If you have a really cool alternative for a planted tank, post them, too! Also, what are good tank mates for the size of the tank? I'm looking more for shrimp/fish that will help clean, but won't threaten my bettas.

So.. sound off! =]

Your tank is too small for anything but shrimp. Check out ghost shrimp if you want scavengers, amanos for aglae-eating and cherries for a middle-ground.

For 5 gallons besides the betta I would stick with snails or ghost shrimp. Both will help you clean the tank.
