@Taeanna: Heehee! I know! I love the tannin-water simply because his iridescence really shines through.

I could not agree more! I have never had a full tank for any of my bettas and theyve all lived long lives. Besides one that the cat drank all of the water out of the bowl before knocking it over :(
As long as the fish is happy, what does it matter? People often forget that they need to get to the surface to breathe, but they arent strong swimmers!! Tall tanks can be just as cruel as teeny tiny bowls

These are my three 1 gallons that i have that i've been so afraid to use because of people freaking out about them.
Seeing how well everyone else is doing with 1 gals, i think i might try it out. :)Name:  IMG_6535[1].jpg

I found a mini-heater at Petsmart so feel a lot more comfortable making a mini-tank my hospital tank. Having killed my first betta (when I was 9) by cranking up the water heater I'm always really cautious now about temperature control.

I hate the heaters that have no temp control. I worry about overheating and underheating.

Eh... those wall-hanging ones are tricky. You have to place em somewhere without drafts, not in direct view of sunlight... I wouldn't use em personally. They look like a pain to clean and a female, a short-fin male, or an athletic long-fin male may jump right out. Too many variables to worry about with those.

The little corner one looks lovely though! I'd return the wall-hangers and get two more of the corner tanks. Good luck and I cannot wait to see how your tanks look all set up!

@FishyFishy89: Agreed! I could not stand the bulky-big TopFin heater I had so I splurged and bought a little Archea Mini Heater (25w) off of the ADA site. It was 28 and s+h but it's so tiny and unobtrusive. Also, it works wonderfully.

Here are my tanks...my family and I have a very small apartment so for now everyone is in 1 gallon tanks except my girls are in a 5 gallon...and my goldfish are in a 10 gallon.
Diego our first is in a corner tank. I have to get him another plant though I had another one in there and it tore his fin so he's getting another silky plant. Everyone has hiding areas and heaters and lights.


Spock...a.k.a. Valentine But my daughter watched startrek and renamed him Spock...we have only had him bout 2 weeks...lol




My Girls Storm....Elsa and Ana ( a.k.a Rain....my daughter renamed her too lol, she's 3 1/2) Also homes 3 ghost shrimp Larry, Curly and moe and 2 baby Cory catfish Spot & Blink



Right now I have Vudu the baby and Echo that technically belong to my work....waiting on approval for new tanks in exam rooms..so I have had Vudu since 6 wks and Echo since I picked him up at store for the clinic.....here are there tanks


Leviathian, Phoenix and Tobias are the other fish. I care for at work. They all have 2 gallon vases. With silk planted etc. Working on getting real plants for each tank. Lights are on most of the day there and heat is always high...its a vet clinic...I dont have photos of there tanks though.
