Ooh I like that. That would look nice in my divided tank...Where did you get it??
p.s. if those betta bulbs grow, you gotta tell me your secret. I can't ever get mine to grow :(

a place called Savers (http://www.savers.com/Default.aspx)
it's like Goodwill - you know, where people come in and donate their stuff.

I was originally looking for a small planter, but I saw that and it looked neat.

Try going to a place like that, and look at their candle stuff

lol ok, if they do grow, I'll make a post about it - it does say to give it 30 days.... so, we'll see.

i have the bulbs too, i got mine at walmart......some take longer than 30 days to get a few inches big, but if you dont see ANY sprouting at all in 4 weeks, usually u can return them and get them replaced. all of mine sprouted, at different times, some a week some up to 6 weeks, but all are doing well

If that candle holder is soapstone (looks like it), I'd make very sure that you can use that in an aquarium. It's very, very soft and I'd worry that it might degrade or somethin'.

even though it has a 1 oh the mohs mineral hardness scale - that deals with the scratch resistance.

but regardless, talc (part of soapstone) is not water soluble.

Anyhoo, I do appreciate the concern though!! 8)
