I'm making this journal just to keep track of my plans and thoughts as well as to keep track of my progress. My friend told me he might buy the 14 liter setup off me in a month or two which got me planning 2 extra tanks. I dont have a fish room or anything but I've rearranged my bedroom to fit as much as i can.
Nibblez is my first ever betta and i got him about 2 months back. I still have yet to figure out what tail he is or what colour class he falls into. He's just so lovable, curious, greedy, loves to eat the food off my finger and he just follows me, not much of an explorer.
Tenshi was an impulse buy about 2-3 weeks back. I saw him in the same pet store i bought Nibblez and i just had to have him. I bought him even though i have no proper tank setup for him so i put him in the 2 liter cube (and he is still in it) that i got Nibblez with. He is a bit shy compared to Nibblez but inquisitive none the less and loves to explore. I dont have a photo of him in the cube as it is now.
Theres the 14 liter (3.8gal) all in one setup which is the one my friend is considering to buy. Its a simple setup with a plant (not sure what kind) planted onto a piece of driftwood, a rock with grey gravel and the betta hammock. This is the tank Nibblez is in (first photo).
The spare 2-3 liter (.8-1gal) cube which is currently housing Tenshi (second photo) which i hope never to use except for emergencies or as a QT.
Ever since i got Tenshi, I've acquired a 38 liter (10gal) tank which i have planned to make into a NPT. Pretty much threw all my money into it, its got the substrates in but I'm still waiting for the driftwood and rocks to finish my hardscape. This is the stage it's currently at aside from the recently acquired lid.
Aside from the 38 liter tank that I have under construction, as long as my friend buys the 14 liter tank I have, I plan to get 2 25 liter (7gal) tanks. These are also going to be NPT just like the 38 liter tank but i will probably design it differently, somehow. But with 3 proper tanks, this means that i can get more fishies. I am currently tossing up between 2 plans. Would be great if any of you have any recommendation of which plan to go with or advice.
38 liter tank becomes a sorority NPT community tank and the 25 liter tanks will be community tanks for the 2 male bettas i have right now. This plan will allow me to get a few female bettas.
38 liter tank becomes a large NPT community tank with a male and the 25 liter will also be community NPT community tank with a male betta each. So this means i get to get 1 more male betta.
Thats pretty much if for now, I'll just keep all my updates here. I should be updating pretty soon with the driftwood and rocks once I'm happy with the hardscape.
