Guppy's new home...

Guppy will be moving out of his hospital tank into a new home in the morning.

I wanted to share his new redesigned tank...

That's the old tank on top, the new one bellow.

This is a closeup of the new tank:

I added a background, put the heater in the gravel at the bottom so it is out of sight and took all the color specs out of the gravel. I am so excited, I hope he likes it.

My cat Minou is so excited she can barely contain herself.

LOL

Very pretty! What size is the new tank? It looks huge compared to his old one. I'm sure he's gonna love it!

It is the same size. Just closer to the camera. Only a 2.5 gallon but he is an only fish and since he came from a half gallon, he thinks its huge. When I first put him in he freaked out.

Thanks. She is big, especially for a girl. We tend to spoil our pets a little.

This morning guppy moved into his new home. He spent a while exploring, I think he likes it.

I love your tank. Are you going to do 1-50 and 1-100% water changes like a lot of people recommending?

You know... It never dawned on my you could put the heater under the gravel.. Is it a normal heater or one of those Betta bowl heaters you have to have under the gravel?

I love the tank, it's so pretty. I have to get one like that for one of my HMs, his fins are far too big for his little body and has trouble swimming right in larger tanks.

Your cat is so cute too. I love kitties <3

It's a Hydor THEO Submersible Aquarium Heater 25W UL - I got it on amazon.

It works great but during his ick treatment it would not get the tank above 83F... so i would not recommend it for a larger tank. It is not fully submerged though, but it is one of the installation suggestions on the box. adjusting it is a little harder but it isn't like I need to do that too often.

I hate looking at gear so I try to camouflage or hide it as much as possible.

Nice tank!!!! Did you hold onto the colored bits?

That's also a wonderful idea to hide the heater down in the gravel!!!!! Something so simple, and it makes something so bulky blend into the tank so well :D

Every time I get an empty tank I end up filling it lately and I go out and buy another for a hospital tank... and it gets filled..... My name is Twilight Storm and i'm addicted to Bettas..... :D
