Lol honestly at first it was quit bare but cheshire loves to hide. He only comes out when I'm around XD so added more hidey holes.

Asukabetta: your bowl is absolutely gorgeous! I am jealous! And congrats on Cheshire's recovery :) It is always so nice to hear when a betta recovers from an illness.

I agree with Creat as well: I think arguments...especially if it's same argument and it's all over the forum...really do tend to push people away; a constant argument turns people off and makes the forum inhospitable! We should all work harder at getting along!
thank u :) and yes I agree with your 2nd statement as well which is why I was getting frustrated that no matter how many times I attempted to end the convo it continued but oh well its over and done now. Im happy with my tank and so is Sushi and thats all that really matters in the end right :)

anyway asukabetta u have an adorable tank, I love it! it looks like a posh little hotel for fish lol

Wow! this thread was originally started so people could have a "safe place" to share pics and tips on their small tanks, and has morphed into a sounding board for anti small tanks. Perhaps those people who don't have positive feedback should just stop visiting this thread and start a thread all about the virtues of large tanks. Love the pics, they are calm and so soothing to view. I have a 1.5 hex with rcs and when one of my kids show me how to post pics ( old person syndrome ) i will share.

So I moved my baby Nova onto the coffee table in the living room (he was in the bedroom) because I could tell he was getting lonely, and he is soooo much happier now! I hope this will accelerate his growth, I am so excited to see what he's going to turn out like when he's full grown. He's so tiny right now I can hardly believe it, and his colors change every day! He doesn't have a heater because our apartment stays at 78* and his thermometer reads 76* and he's perfectly happy with that!

I have a small anubias in my 10 gallon, but should I put that in the 1.5 gallon? Would it help water quality at all???? Here it is as a hospital tank.


I mean, I have a 3.5, 5, and 10 gallon. Quite frankly, I'm out of space! BUT, do I want to get a sick fish, or a healthy one? I saw this really small guy at the store today. He was really small, thin, with short fins. He didn't look like he had fin rot though. He was a VT, and I think that a VT would be perfect in this size tank. However, I also have a small VT in my divided 5 gallon. I could put him in the 1.5 and get a new healthy one!!!! What should I do?

I have the exact tank (twice over). I do not use the silly filtration thinner it comes with. It is more of a hassle than anything. I do usually add an adjustable bubbler to avoid slimy build up on the surface though!

If you want to rescue a sick fish, make sure to have a good number of medications on hand :)

I do agree that everyone here deserves respect. I know many great people here, who use 1 gallons. Who use 20 gallons. It makes no difference - the real difference is what kind of care the beta can receive. For instance my friend had let me take her betta who she rescued from someone who never cleaned the tank, overfed, had a pleco and guppies with the betta, and the betta was so rotted his fins were falling off! And it took months to get rid of SBD, but he pulled through.
FYI that tank was a 29 gallon.

I may end up making a 2-3 gallon if the one fry I have makes it. He/she has a bent spine yet swims, eats, and does just fine! I would make it so it can reach the surface when fins grow in (especially if it is a male...) so it would end up being a shallow and long tank :)

TRUER WORDS HAVE NEVER BEEN SPOKEN!....those who dont agree with smaller tanks should probably just unsubscribe from this thread, start thier own and leave us simplistic folk to enjoy the fun and unique way that we all choose to set up our smaller scale homes
