Since my previous betta passed I have been slowly learning about cycles and proper betta care. I have been progressing a little at a time with live plants and such. My wife likes to call it my addiction
Here is my old tank when my previous betta passed. no heater, plastic plants, started as gravel then was glass beads with UGF
here is the same tank with a new betta and was planted with black betta sand, anubias and 2 compact sword plants, and a heater
Now i wanted something a little bigger and with a better filter. same plants and sand and heater.
Just added in one bunch of moneywort and one bunch of anacharis
The circle is the anubias rhizome and the squares are the compact swords
Here is a night shot with the "moonlight" feature on
Sorry for the blurry pics my cell phone camera didn't want to focus correctly sometimes. If you are wondering where my new betta is he is in QT for fin rot and to allow the new tank to cycle.
I would also like to thank all those who have helped answer my questions and set me straight me a few times. I am so glad I found this place, my wallet one the other hand not so much. But I wouldn't change it for anything because I learn so much everyday.
