for betta keepers with curious cats

I was at a thrift store and saw an old TV stand for $8 that looks just like the one in the photo. I removed the wheels and the shelf inside. My bookshelf style aquarium fits inside perfectly! I have it on top of my dresser with a small TV on top and the cats can't get to it MUAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I would post a picture of it but since it is in my bedroom, I think not. I'm a horrible housekeeper Maybe someday.

They hop on top and take the filter cover off. Once I came home to find a filter half off the tank and the water all spilled out. Thankfully the motor had not burned out. After that I taped everything down with packing tape and it worked, but it's a pain come cleaning time. I did take some photos after all, I will upload soon!

I put my Bettas tank down on the floor by my kitty when we first got the fish just to see if we would have any problems. My kitty couldnt be bothered. lol

Good idea though for ones that would. :)

They have calmed down about the tanks these days but I don't trust them (I have 7 cats and 3 tanks).

The first shows with TV on top and the second shows with the glass doors open.

Oh wow, they're very curious! xD When I first got my tank they would try to stick their paws in the hood gap by the filter. But now they leave it alone for tr most part.

It looks great! Before I knew howto properly care for bettas I had my old betta in a 1/2 gallon unheated tank (yeah I know... It didn't take him long to die :( ) my cat would sit by the "tank" and wrap his body around it. Once I came home and my cat had slid the lid off, but the lid fell in the tank so he couldn't get my betta.

I have 7 totally spoiled kitties. When I am home during the day, I leave the hood off of Sparkle's tank.

My kitties love to drink the water even though they have numerous bowls of fresh well water to drink from.

They don't even realize that a fish resides in the tank. Sparkle goes right up to the top and they completely ignore him.

I think my kitties believe I created a giant "fish-flavored" water bowl for them
