My bed/fishroom

It's hard to get photos of the main part of my collection as I have an empty 4ft tank taking up most of my floor space. However, I snapped two shots to show how I have my fish area set-up.

Ignore the mess of airline tubing and powercords. I really need to sort them out. Also my room is pink. It now has to stay that colour until my fish move elsewhere haha.


Top shelf (left to right): Betta unimaculata, Betta burdigala, Betta brownorum, Betta tussyae/livida/albimarginata, Betta rutilans

Middle shelf (left to right): Pseudomugil gertrudae 'spotted blue-eye', Pseudomugil tenellus 'delicate blue-eye'/Melanotaenia maccullochi Skull Ck, Pseudomugil mellis 'honey blue-eye'

Bottom shelf (left to right): Betta sorority, Goldfish tank

To the right of the picture there are two 30cm cubes with two female bettas in them on my chest of drawers.


Top shelf: Betta persephone
Bottom shelf: Two betta females in 30cm cubes




Then we have my barracks which is downstairs where I house most of my betta males and all of my killifish.

I have four other tanks not shown but they just house miscellaneous wilds and bettas.

Thanks. It is cool having them up here in my room but between the noise, the water on the carpet and the mess I have to say I can't wait until I get something purpose-built.

To think it all started with my dad's goldfish in a 15 gallon tank three or so years ago.

Riccia and duckweed. The one in with the orange/blue coloured betta is just some leftover hydrilla.

such an awesome setup! I'm so jealous. I'd love to have a tank right next to or over my bed so I can watch them when I'm sleepy.

Currently I have this pair in a tank beside my bed as I've run out of useable flat surfaces.



Although looking at my shelf I am wondering if I could fit a series of 18x18x18 tanks in there, get rid of the cubes below and put in a small sump. Then I could have some nice show males/my best females in them instead.

Holyyy toleeeeddoooooo! I could never do that......
The only way I could do that is if all the fish were turned into birds....I just love birds.
But you do a fantastic job with those tanks anyways :)

LBF, you're amazing. Nine species of wild betta, the killifish, native fish, goldfish, splendens.. and the guppy, lol...

The persephones are some -really- dark water. Is that for breeding? Or because they like water that dark, in general?

I was talked out of having the macrostoma as a first wild species, and I am inclined to think that was a good move. I'm maybe looking at imbellis... but they're just .. not the same. Any recommendations on slightly bigger wilds that aren't such a challenge for a novice?
