Polo,
Just curious, what kind of plants are those floaters? I really love the look. Beautiful tank! I'm a bit envious of all the live plants.

^ Agreed, that tank is beautiful. I'm starting to maybe think that I want live plants now...

Note on that red tree ornament. I have had it for about 2 months and had no problems, though lately my betta has been wedging himself through some of the small leafy areas. Today I came back to my dorm and saw he had a rip in his fin and a little bit of tail missing. I'm not sure if he's stressed and tailbiting (I just put in some ghost shrimp and he isn't sure if he likes them), or if he just swam too hard into the tree, but just keep that in mind.

Thanks for the compliments! The floaters are Creeping Charlie (Micromeria Brownei). They're the same as the few that are planted

Nemo's home part deux. Newly renovated

Just got it all spiffed up as of today. Two weeks into owning a betta <3 He seems to be loving his new home, complete with real plants and silk ones.

I know I just posted a picture not too long ago, but I just bought more plants today, so I had to post another. Everything (but the betta hammock) is live now!

Ugh, Ziggy keeps attacking the ghost shrimp. He's killed 2 now. Great. Guess he's not as friendly as I though.

Would a mystery snail make a better companion?

I've heard of aggressive bettas biting the antennae things of snails.

I had a nice betta for 3 years that lived happily with a yellow Apple snail. The next betta harrassed the snail to death. Luck of the draw? I also am loving my live plants. !st time I've tried them. Doing OK so far. My daughter has a planted tank, and got me started. Her water parameters are amazing with all the plants in there with the fish. She has to cut them back. She has a 10 gal(?) fluval.
