He's got a great setup... but I'm going to give you 2 pieces of advice.
1. You really need to keep an eye on those golden ribbons plants as they are not aquarium plants and will rot over time and make the water toxic. An aquatic plant that will give you that hight and will do great in sunlight is the amazon sword.
2. Might want to put some type of lid on that tank. Bettas are BIG jumpers and can jump very high through the smallest of places. I had a betta once jump from a very small opening on my MiniBow 1. I'm talking about a .75"x1" opening!

Enjoy your little fella!
Yes the plant has actually been takin out because I learned that its not aquatic and will rot(after the fact of buying) *rolls eyes. I was wondering what plant I could put in that I liked and could buy at Petco. And the amazon sword was one that I liked! Just needed to do some research before buying, so thanks for the recommendation. :D

When Im gone, I place construction paper with some good size holes in them on top of the tank so he cant jump out. :)

Talking

This is my Betta boy, Argo.....

I am sorry I have not uploaded any pix of him until now, but I JUST figured out how to post pix on this forum. Argo is a CT male whom I adopted from PetSmart. He is my first Betta & I'm already addicted.

Beautiful fish and tank! He's very luck to have a 10 gallon all to himself. I just recently got my first betta also :) I only have him in a MiniBow 1 Gallon tank because I'm in a college dorm and it's just the most practical for water changes and maintenance. He seems to be loving it though! We kinda went for the same theme, I was imagining an Atlantis sort of thing :P

Sometimes I see a lot of comments on here about smaller tanks. I feel that if you are taking rescuing these poor creatures from a potato salad cup at Petsmart, anything would be better.

I was in Walmart today and they has some small Betta tank that much have been a quart. Now that is just too small.

I am sure he is very happy living in his Greek paradise.

Thank you :) I completely agree. Maybe it would have been better if I opted for the 2.5, but I feel that he is very happy in there, he has a good amount of room to freely swim around. The water is circulated and filtered as well. It really is a shame that chain stores keep them in little plastic cups, often filled with medications, for months and months. My local fish shop keeps them each in a quarter gallon tank with a filtration system, much better than a cup.

I don't have room for a big tank.....so Argo is very happy in his two-gallon bowl.

1 gals are fine as long as they are maintained. I was doing changes every other day in my 1 gal and I wouldn't be opposed to getting another betta once we're settled in to our new place. Lakitu is in the kitchen window currently (pics to come!) and the heater plus in right underneath :)
