i loved your story :) your betta is beautiful! and ive noticed as well that mine has more personality than i ever imagined a fish could have. i went to a lot of stores before and after i bought mine and it really is sad how they dont even treat them like living creatures :( yours looks so sick in the first picture compared to the most recent one. hes lucky to have someone who cares about him :)

I love those rocks. The tank is really elegant! I like it a lot!

Do you keep it filled right to the top? Do you find your betta has a hard time finding where to come up for air? Or has he gotten the hang of it. I always like the "cube of water" idea that is this tank but wondered about how bettas would take to it.

I didn't fill it all the way up at first, but I inadvertently trained him to find the open area. I started adding more water and he was able to tell where the air space started and he always goes to the hole anyway when I feed him. Now, he knows if there's no airspace at the top to go to the center hole.
He's a little odd because he likes the current from the filter. If its on high output, he gets in it and blasts himself across the tank. If its on low, its not enough to push him, but now I notice he's started getting in the current and flaring like a sail. He gets the same effect and gets swooshed across the tank. He's a weird little dude.

why do you have so much sand in there? It looks like half the amount of that would have been enough, it's just taking more space now and it doesn't look as nice IMHO...
But don't forget every eyes have their own painter :P

Oh, that's my husband doing his reef thing on my Betta tank. I tried to talk him out of it. It does make it easier to plant the big stuff.

ow, i know the feeling, when family members mess with your stuff, drives me crazy, but nothing i can do about it
I know it's easier to plant stuff, but you don't have thaaat many plants and they would have done fine with half the amount of sand

Sure, but then Mr. Deep Sand Bed wouldn't be happy.
