Yep! I really liked the Visio tanks. The "smaller" sizes seem to have been made specifically for bettas because they come with glass dividers .

Undergun.. be careful in your 5 gallon.. with a betta, cories alone are overloading the bio load.. add in multiple snails who have a HUGE bio load and will reproduce faster then a rabbit lol.. you may have some trouble.
Beautiful tank, just make sure to watch the chemistry very careful and do lots of water changes.. but a 5 gallon is normally not recommended for a betta and multiple other fish. Just wanted to make sure you're aware of the dangers. Good luck to you! Again, you have awesome looking tanks!

I am aware of this, but thank you for the warning! I do small water changes every 3 days & "spot clean" with a turkey baster. When we were in San Diego I came across pygmies for $3 each, so I had to get quite a few of them since here in AZ they are $8+ each and have to be special ordered.

Nope...I have one 10g, one 5g, and two 2.5g tanks. My plan is to purchase the new Tetra 15g tank from Petco...and all my pygmies will be moved into there. Like I said, I understand there is "too many" living things inside of the 5g, which is why I do many water changes. So yes, I did buy the pygmies because they were cheaper in CA then AZ....the price and availability were too good to pass up since I had been wanting them for a while.
