As some of you know, i recently adopted three bettas from my teacher who had them as class pets but thought they were "too much work". they are in tiny 1.5 gallon critter keepers filled halfway, with barely enough glass pebbles to cover the bottom of the tank, and no filter or heater.
they are obviously in need of a major tank renovation
i saw this really pretty mopani wood at petco.
) it says online that it is "A beautiful two color African hardwood for aquariums" and "One of the hardest and densest woods available; sinks immediately in aquariums and unlike driftwood, will not rot"
but for the same price, they also have "Faux-pani", (http://www.petco.com/product/114636/...escription-tab
) which looks very realistic but "is made of resin which does not release tannins like natural Mopani wood does"
so would either of those be good for my betta tank?
