His colors are just beautiful and I love that I get to stare at him every day! Betta fish are amazing, and I now know I will ALWAYS have one in my home! I actually was in Petsmart the other day, and purchased a new Twintail male! His name is Ruby, and he resides in his own 5g, heated tank as well! Here is a picture of him!

Beautiful fish! And welcome to the community :). I have the 5 gallon chi tank as well, it's great (other than my led lights burnt out before even a year, go figure). Your set up is so pretty. May I make a friendly suggestion though? I would really suggest getting (if they manufacture them) or making a cover for your chi tank. Bettas are fantastic jumpers and they can easily get out of the open top tanks. I had one manage to jump out even with a lid on! He got through the little space between the plexi-glass I cut for the lid and the filter in the middle. Not to scare you though but it's just a safety precaution. You can even cut them out of a sort of mesh that you can find at a craft store. Cheap, simple, and can save you some heart ache in the future.

Good luck! Keep us updated :D

Thank you for the suggestion! In my research i've read about them jumping out of tanks, and definitely want to make a lid for it! I've also got the Fluval Spec 5g, my Halfmoon Plakat is housed in, and that tank did come with a lid! Here is a photo of my other Betta tank!

As another user pointed out to me once they sell the lids for the Fluvial Chi on Amazon. Had I known before I would have bought one of these tanks. Always an option for later though.

I think those tanks are really cool, but I've always been a bit worried about it not having a lid. I always end up opting for cheaper options. maybe someday...
