hey everybody, great news! (well at least for me anyways)
ive found a lovley five gallon that is acctually easy on maintainence. i like it so much i gave my sister my other tall 5gall

it was a pretty good deal too. it come with the tank, hood, filter, heater, regular size food, a silk plant, 3 samples of liquid stuff, and a thermometer. all for $40 :)



Here's where i replaced my old one

but yes i will get a regular thermometer.


and here is what i plan to do with it
(sorry for the paint job i had an idea in my mind that i didnt want to loose. lol)

i was also thinkin' of some kinda floating plant in it.
any other suggestions??

Looks great! I'm glad you didn't go with the other one too- I was worried about how the "Enclosed fully pressurized tank-top filtration system" (quote from their website) would work. It sorta sounded like it wouldn't work if the top wasn't screwed on, and that there wouldn't be any air at the top of the tank for the betta to breath :(

But yours it looking great, and I'm sure your sisters betta will be quite happy in your old tank!

Are you cycling with or without fish? Water changes slow down the process if but it necessary if there's a fish in the tank. If so, do a water change every time ammonia gets over .5 or so.
