Love this tank! I am thinking of upgrading to a 10 gallon and splitting it so I can get another betta and have a nice planted tank like you but I am going to wait and see how Zen does. I have only had him for a little over a week and he seems to be doing good.
He is so cute, and a beautiful home too... I have boy similar to Toby, I named him Legolas. :)

I'm hoping to one day upgrade even further to a 2.5 gallon tank but that has to wait until my next payday (and after my move to a new apartment). And then hopefully I'll be able to get a heater as well, but for now I'm thanking the fact that my apartment stays pretty warm.
and the 29 gallon i bought last Sunday. I did set it up, decided not to like it and will take everything out tomorrow and turn it into a planted/natural tank with Neon Tetras, Cory's and a Betta ( not sure what we are going to get)
Lots of beautiful tanks. Here's mine, all though I still feel like it needs something else. I was really hoping to try and grow a green tiger lotus in there, not sure if that would work. I'll need to upgrade lights which I need to do anyways.
He's got a small java fern, an anubias in the back and a PVC U stuck in the gravel as a cave. I couldn't find anything I was comfortable buying at the store so I decided to DIY, I'll be siliconing some black gravel or something onto it in the future.
I have a 4 gallon take by Marineland I recently got to upgrade my betta from much smaller space. I can't tell if my betta Mercutio hates the filter or if it is too strong. When I turn it on, he swims vigorously away from it and it seems like he may be getting jerked around by the currents. I currently I have the filter off. Also, he can see his reflection in the glass. He looks at the reflection, but has not tried to bite himself or flared at it. Is there a way to make a filter more gentle and do I need to worry about the reflection? Is there a way to reduce reflection?
