Apacolpse I like your tank but the java fern needs to be planted on wood or weighed down with a rock or it will die. :)

It's tied onto a rock, you just can't see it in the picture for some reason. It's not buried in the gravel.

This is my new male betta! I think he might be a DT, but I am not sure.

Unfortunately, he is in a bowl right now, but I plan to upgrade him to a 5g tank as soon as Walmart has them in stock!

I am SO happy and proud to be the owner of 2 beautiful bettas!

i'll give that a try. do i take him out before i do the 25% water changes while i'm pouring in the new treated water? if so how long do i keep him out of the water for? and my tank is 1.5 gallons i think the 2 gallon heater will be fine. i dont think they make heaters for less than 2 gallons do they?

I have been browsing through more than half of this thread and have really enjoyed seeing everyone's tanks...they are kinda like an expression of a person's individualism and creativity...

I'll be posting mine up tomorrow once the final additions are made in preparation for the community tank.

@small fry If he is DT I think it's just barely. He almost more looks like a plakat though with those short fins, which I like. And it looks like he might have some pretty awesome coloring once he's adapted!

Yes, they do. There is a small round heater and also a rectangular, both are flat and take up very minimal space. One word of caution though is that they are preset to a certain temp and can only keep up to about 7 degrees of ambient so if you are like me and keep your house at arctic +2 then the heater is pretty much useless. :)
