I am a little worried about the end of the flowered plant in my tank, though. I am thinking I will do something with that next time I change water. It looks like a fin disaster just waiting to happen for my CT.
lol if it hasn't happened, then leave it in there.. just know if you see a split fin, that's most likely the culprit. My guy just adores it.. it was the only thing I could find that fit decently in the one gallon.. when I upgraded his tank, I upgraded his decor.. I gave it back to him not too long ago, when I had to QT him for salt treatment (he didn't react too well to some tea tannin) and it was like he never had forgotten about it- immediately went into it and kept poking his head out like a turtle, like he used to do all the time lol. So when he returned to his home tank I put it in there since I felt bad taking it away after he used it to recluse to when he was sick.

If it's soft enough, the flowered plant may not do anything.. Sometimes I will snip off the points if I think they are too.. pointy. CTs tend not to get their fins split too easily, as their fins are naturally split for the most part.

First Time Fish Owner :)

I don't have my little boy yet (he'll be arriving express mail on Tuesday of next week if it all goes well), but here's the home I have set up for him!
It's a 2.5 gal Kritter Keeper with a pineapple house, silk plant, and leaf hammock.
The heater is a Hydor Theo 25 watt that hasn't been working well at all and will soon be replaced with a Cascade 25 watt.

Are you sure your guppies are alright? Are you planning on permanently keeping them in the 2.5 gallon? Not only will it get a little cramped, but guppies are tail biters. Don't be surprised if one day you check in on your little guy and his tail is in shreds. It happened to me :(

Nice tanks everyone!

Madame- you can actually put more water into that KK to almost the top- less water means it's not a 2.5 gallon. Just use a large cup to take out water when doing the 100% if you are afraid of carrying it full. But he would appreciate the added half gallon or so that is at the top :) Can't wait to see him in his new home!

Ozzy- have to agree with Fawn, a 2.5 is no where near big enough to hold multiple fish- anything below 10 shouldn't have more then one fish in it- as the tank is not big enough to hold the bio load it's carrying right now with the guppies. And as mentioned, it being a smaller tank you are cramping them in close- some bettas don't do well with other fish and in small tank they will feel closed in and can be ticking time bombs waiting to go off- same with the guppies- they will go after the betta, and since the tank is bare, there is no place for them to hide in. Definitely recommended to rehome the guppies into 10 gallons + cycled tank.. the 2.5 will never be cycled and that can affect their health.
