Ahhhh thanks guys! Im glad you like my new tank. Thanks for all the kind words and helping with his name. , Gabriel it is !

Yes the evolve has a lid, it's just a clear plastic flat piece with little edges that just sort of hang or sit on the edge of the tank. It has a few vents in the back and a hole in the right front corner for feeding. I guess the designers were going for the minimalist look.

Here's pic looking down at it so you can see what it looks like. The moisture has built up so you can't see how big his bubble nest is. Two days in the tank and he's got a quarter of the tank covered lol

I couldnt find any at the LFS either, OR driftwood. Then last week I was talking to a guy that works at my local Petco who raises Bettas and knows a lot about planted tanks, he told me about a place called "The Planted Aquarium Store". It's about a 45 min drive from here but he said that's where he gets all his plants and supplies, even though he works at Petco! Lol So thats where I was abe to find the Christmas Moss.
I hope you're able to find some too .

Palm Beach County represent! I'm in West Palm. The Planted Aquarium is awesome. Which is good, since it is the only freshwater aquarium store for hours around.

Yup, Palm Beach County. :)

I agree, there are very few actual aquarium stores around other than the chains, ie Petco, Petsupermarket, and Petsmart, which are fine if you're looking for a heater or new sponge, but their plant sellection leaves much to be desired.

I remeber years ago, I use to go to a store called Fins Firs and Feathers. I think it was in Boca, on Federal Hwy. Also one called The Barrier Reef, which I think is also in Boca. But its been years and I dont remember if they had live plants. I know The Barrier Reef was geared toward salt water but they did have a limited number of freshwater fish. Of course it's been so long it could have all changed.

Have you been to either of those stores recently?
