Fishy's home. It's a planted 10 Gallon, with driftwood, an ornament, Assassin Snails and Pond Snails. The Pond Snails were unwelcome hitch-hikers on one of the plants. For plant info; I have Java Moss, Anubias (not sure which variety), and 3 Amazon Sword plants. They've all been given some SeaChem Flourish gravel tabs, and I have a 10W flourescent light for them.
The Tank filter (an AquaTech 5-15) has been baffled with an algae sponge, and the blue thing on the filter intake is a small peice of OR disposable scrub cap. (I work in a hospital, so these things are free and easy for me to get ahold of).

The tank itself was a Walmart special that I had originally used for my three Goldfish. Once I got them upgraded to a bigger home, I started to refurbish the 10 Gallon in anticipation for Borealis. I had to get a heater and thermometer though, which wasn't a big issue.
The tank is also completely cycled, so I won't have to worry about stressing him too much with the same frequent water changes I do for the Goldfish, nor the Ammonia or Nitrite levels getting too high.

Thought I'd share my current betta set up.
They are both 10 gallon tanks divided with DIY dividers. I know they aren't partitioned perfectly, but I didn't want to silicon them in place in case I wanted to do something different with the tanks down the rode. Both tanks are heated and filtered. I only use live plants.


Thanks for looking!

I love the ten gallon tank ideas with dividers. If I were to buy one of the 12$ ten gal. can I add a bubbler thingy, and filter? Or do I have to buy it as the whole tank set up with the bubbler and filter?

I have just a plain ten gallon that i got bare (no hood or filter) and got the filter and heater separate. ^.^ It works wonderfully, and actually ended up costing me less than the kits, because i dont have the hood. But i am thinking now of getting one to increase the heat in my tank. the heater keeps the water around 75-77, i would like it warmer than that. If you get a better heater though you wont have to worry about a hood. XD I am cheap though and got the $15 heater at walmart.

Hey all, new to the forum, but not to fish keeping. Thought I would share my bettas homes.

This is my female. My fiancee just named her Bloody Mary. She has a 2.5 gallon tank with a Hagen Elite Mini filter. There are Java Fern, Dwarf Baby Tears, Crypto Parva, and some Blyxa. The tank gets dosed every other day with Excel and once a week with Flourish. The light is a 10 watt mini CFL full spectrum light.

This is my male's tank. His name is Gigantopithacus. His tank is a 1 gallon kit tank with power filter and 7 watt incandescent light. It has 5 crypto bulbs growing in it. It gets dosed every other day with Excel and once a week with Flourish.
I do a 70% water change once a week. They get a mixed diet of flake food and blood worms. I will soon be adding mosquito larvae to that menue.
Thanks for looking.
