Here's some pics on how the tank is set up. Iridium is in the clear box to acclimate and get used to the tank without my females harassing her. The baby is named Dipstick cuz he jumped out of the breeder net into the tank and hid in the jungle val. I caught him and he's starting to look kinda like a salamander to me. Anyways, here's the pics.








The stocking is:
Female Bettas x3
Baby Betta
Black Phantom Tetras x3
Platies x4
Zebra Danio
White Cloud Mountain Minnows x2
Dwarf Gourami
Rubberlip Pleco
Black Kuhlis x2
Banded Kuhlis x3
RCS

Plants:
Jungle Val
Rotala Rotundifoloa
Bacopa
Myrio Green
Rose Sword
Java Fern
Java Moss

My lights crapped out so I'm currently trying to get all CFLs instead of just one. My plants were dying and I'm trying to regrow them.

I believe that they would get eaten. Those shrimp look expensive and it would be terrible if a betta ate all of them. My bettas are fine with shrimp, but it depends on the personality of the betta. See how your betta does with red cherry shrimp. If he's fine, then go ahead and get the pandas.

So, I'm having trouble with Dip. He got out of the breeder net twice already and it was freaking me out. His fins are now ripped and he has been moved to my 10g divided. He's still in the breeder net, but I found a hole at the bottom and plugged it up with java moss. I'm wondering if I can just create a little section for him and move someone else (like Fire) into my 2.5. I'm not sure what to do, but I'll figure something out. :/

Not only that, but Iridium is having some swim bladder problems. I'm gonna feed her some peas and see how she does.

Hi Kiara! Wonderful pictures I love pic heavy threads!

I really can't tell from the photos, but if you haven't already plug up the holes in the terra cotta pots, please do. My first betta just died a few days ago from getting stuck in the hole. He probably panicked and had a heart attack.

Great pictures again!

I've had those terra cotta pots for three years now. My fish are fine with them. See? That's Owl. He and all my other bettas fit through perfectly, but they really don't try. They're fine, I assure you.
