My betta tanks and bowls! (lots-o-pics)

Please forgive the dirty-ness in some of them... It was water change day when took these. lol. Also, my tens dont have any substrate because i got pissed at the sand i was using and dumped it all. XD When i get paid i plan on getting a better type of sand, or gravel and put different colors in each section, what do you guys think? :D

Speckle, 2.5, room temp, sand substrate:


Twitch, 8, heated with a bubbler, gravel substrate. Also shares with 4 khuli loaches and several dozen ramshorn snails (for now, getting an assassin snail next week) Water is very low, it was just before a water change:


Spot, Midas, Thaddeus, 10, heated with a bubbler. Heavy tannons because of fin damage.:


Skylight, Miraz, Benten, 10, heated:


Tybalt, Black Swan, 10, room temp (heater broke last water change... >.<):


Sunset, Kisses, Splatter, 1.5gal bowls, and 1gal jar, room temp, but in the warmest corner of the room.:



So what do you all think? Tell me honestly, but please dont start any fights. :)

I take it you're doing the needed water changes of the bowls. :P
They look really nice! ^^ I love the substrate of the 1st tank :) I'm thinking of changing from grave to a finer substrate myself - I think my cories would like it better. :P

lolz, of course. Every day. ^-^ They are getting bigger tanks soon... I lost my job recently, so i couldnt afford them at the time. I can now though. hee hee!

Also, yes, i love sand substrate! My loaches loved it, but i changed to gravel in that tank because i was getting a lot of gasses with the sand, ill try it again when i find some that isnt as bad. I was just using sand-box sand from walmart before, ill switch to aquarium sand when i can afford a bag.

I like the tanks :) I like the dark tanned water personally. My fave tank was Twitchy's.. I would add more silk plants than spiky ones. But I love the nano's :) Maybe the smaller bowls could use some moss for the benefits that live plants offers?

Edit, the air stone in Twitchy's tank, I would get some broad leaf plants and hide the air stone behind it to break the bubbles flow. I do it to mine and it seems to bother Lakitu less. I know all fish are different :)
