What a great thread! I'm enjoying everyone's "tanks". I have a 3 gallon critter keeper that is right now empty. I think I might have to get another betta to put in there, haha! I never thought about a reading light either - what a great idea! And the mesh tube - going to try that too. :P

LOL! I've become obsessed with betta and aquarium keeping. It's ridiculous! :P I'm tempted to go back to Petsmart and see if they have the pretty boy I saw there yesterday. Heh.

I am in love with your stone ornaments. Did you make them?

Thank you! I did make them. Very simple to do, too!

1) Get river rocks. ($1 at Dollar Tree.) Clean with hot water, then soak them overnight.
2) Get aquarium-safe silicone sealant. (The Loctite brand is $4.50 at Lowe's.)
3) Stack rocks until you're happy with the arrangement.
4) Use the silicone to 'glue' everything together. Let sit at least 24 hrs to dry. Rinse with warm water.
5) Put in tank.

In the back of the tank (behind the mesh floater), I also have a terracotta pot attached to a silicone suction cup. My guy loves it, but I noticed today that the silicone adhesive was starting to loosen from the suction cup. I'll need to work on finding a better way to set this up, since the little guy likes hanging out in there.

I've also stacked colored glass to make ornaments too.

Thanks for the lighting pictures! I bet the clip on reading light is a whole lot cheaper than the actual critter keeper light. I think I've seen it online...
