My babies' half gallon marina planted tanks!

Love these tanks, wish thy were least a gallon though, am looking out for any awesome tanks out there that are bigger and similar! But meanwhile, here are my babies (literally)





All suggetions for stylish, not so expensive 1-2gal tanks are most welcome!

So do you have babies in these tanks? Even though they are tiny they look great. The plants help keeping up water quality. I would just save for when they outgrow the tanks. I like the lids you made.

Yup! I will definitely reuse my plants! I ordered the anubias nanas from taiwan too :P.

I'm going to have to check out those kritter keepers :D maybe change out the lid or something and make my own plexiglass lid :)

Those are nice! What are water changes like? Go to garage sales you can find some cool tanks at those. I picked up a 1.5g for 6 bucks with filter.
I personally like this tank here:

Here are just some nice looking ones:

This one is okay

These are just some I have found at walmart that I like. The first and last one I own.

you can get a mini bow, but they are 2.5 gallons (which is actually one of the better tanks for bettas to live a long and healthy, happy life. 5 gallons should be the minimum in my opinion. Cute tanks anyways!

I owned the hawk eye 1 gal and the minibow 1 gal before, the hawkeye was just... flimsy.

Water changes are ... 100% daily, unless I'm dead tired lol. like last night. water is siphoned out with a small airline. I have 1 poland spring gallon bottle for waste water and 1 gal for clean water. refill, dump and repeat :)

@my rainbow betta fish: thanks :D I wish I had the room . 1 gallon ea is almost the max I can have.. unless I stack them? lol! that table is pretty much all the surface I have left in my room. And I have to position things so the plants can also get maximum lighting :) I'll figure it out :(

Okay. You should get a test kit and see if you cant get them to be NPT. You already have some plants, you may possibly be able to get away with fewer changes if the plants are eating the ammonia.

If you don't mind shelling out a little money, the 3 gallon Marina Eclipse is WONDERFUL. : ) It's what I kept my boy in until I got a divided 10 gallon instead)
