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.
Great. you did have another place for the cory's !

The first picture is my daughters female betta tank. The second one is my sons male betta tank.

They are both 5 gallon hawkeye kits from walmart.com and I bought an adjustable heater made by hagan on amazon and use the aquatech hob filter that came with the tank. I attached a piece of sponge on the output of the filter to disperese the flow a little bit. They are planted with wisteria, dwarf sag, and a few small crypts broken off of the bigger crypts in my 29 gallon planted.

I have to say though, now that they spawned in my male tank, I am going to remove the male to put in the females tank and put the female in my 29 gallon community tank (she was in the community tank before I bought the 5 gallon and she did wonderful in there)... at least until the fry get big enough to move to a bigger tank. Then they will both go back to their respective homes. Also, there is a sponge shoved in the intake tube of the filter in the males tank right now so that there is barely any flow in the filter and a piece of sponge of the outside of the intake tube so the fry won't get sucked in. I know a sponge filter is recommended, but there is hardly any flow at all through the filter at the moment, the output is a very slow trickle.

Maybe you could add some more of those green plants (particularly the far most one) for a more heavily planted look, that left most plant is particularly nice & realistic.

If the bettas spawned, you gotta leave the male with the babies.

acadialover- Yes! He love going in it and swimming around! It has a little feeding hole in the top so, when ever I get the food out he goes inside and waits for me to put the food in the hole. He actually like the floating log better then the cave on the ground! I got it at Petsmart for $10.
