If I can find a pretty and healthy one...

I’ll be purchasing a new betta this week. Now I just have decide if I want to fill my 5 gallon up and get a mini plant for just put it in one of those vases they used to come in. (I really like the spongebob tank but I have too many tanks) (and I know heaven forbid I wanna put him in a vase. I know what is recommended I had one for over a year. I know what to do and what not to do. I would take all of the precautionary with a vase just like I would my 5 gallon)


if i do use my 5 gallon tank i wanna have a neat set up. i'm kind of feeling sand. any thoughts or opinions on sand?

I'd go with the 5-gal. There's a lot more you can do with it, decoration-wise. Also if you go with sand, go with something that will bring out your bettas colors. Black is usually nice, unless of course your betta is black.

Sands good to use. buy a big bag of play sand from a home improvement store instead of the stuff at the petstore. Its cheaper this way, and you're bound to vacuum it up here and there during water changes, so its good to have extra lying around when you need to refil

I mean i have a bunch of stuff, like decoration wise from my last betta that I had. the one in my pf picture. i've always used pebbles or those glass rocks (whatever you wanna call them) but idk, i'm just so over using them. i'm ready for something cute, that will brighten up the tank and make it look cleaner (like visual wise)

I tend to raid the hobby lobby sales when they put all the seasonal decorations on sale. Some of their ceramic pieces are just adorable and my snails like to move them around... yes I have crazy snails lol
