Talking I'm new to the Forums, Here's an introduction!

So, I've been coming to this forum for the past month and looking up information and what not. Tonight, I broke down, and joined. Here are some picks of my setup, and I would love to hear your comments, and crits!


My tank setup.


Franklin himself!


Another pic of the whole setup.

Please tell me what you think!

What a fun tank. Franklin really shows up well against the green gravel.

Thanks guys!

Ya, he's grown quite a bit since I bought him. His fins are still healing (bought him to save him), but other then that he is getting better and he swims a lot.

You guys have any advice on how to make sure his fins heal properly?

Zain, unfortunately I don't. I'm a rookie too. I'd say just keep his water quality good, maybe small doses of aquarium salts to help ward off infections. Do you have a water test kit? You'll want to be very careful with the ammonia levels, which you probably know already.

I don't have a water test kit yet... I'm tight on cash (Just bought my own place). But I change 25% of the water every week and I always add a bit of aquarium salt to the tank. (Helped me save a few other Bettas in the past, plus it's good for gill function.) I make sure the tank is above 75deg in temp. I just added the air line to the Dragon to help clean some pollutants as well. He eats, swims and has tons of energy, so I think he's doing alright. In all honesty, I think his fins are getting bigger, and that's why they look torn. They used to look a lot worse.

BTW, as I was typing this he was having a little nap at the feet of the dragon... Wish I got a pic for you guys!
