Do you think its too overcrowded? I just added the treasure chest. He has a new tail biting problem. He hides in the betta log a lot but not too much by the plants, so I thought maybe getting something else to hide in along the bottom would help.

Also ignore the haphazard Badgers cloth wrap. I'm not sure if he is seeing his reflection or not in the sides of the tank. I had the extra cloth so I thought id throw it around the tank and see if it helps.
Not overcrowded. Lots of gravel space visible, which is more than I can say! You'll have fun with a 5g.

Here's my new betta tank.
It's a gallon tank with a gravel filter
He's a dragon scale betta from Petsmart.
I was surprised on how pretty he was, and wasn't too unhealthy.
Considering how most chain pet stores keep their bettas.
Although I saw some really cool halfmoons, but I just had to have this little guy.

I decorated his tank with a replica of Squidward's home from Spongebob.
It provides shade from the light.
And a nice plant, that he can lay on close to the surface.
He's pretty happy in his new home.

Feel free to add me and give me some tips.
I love reading all the different advice on here.

Anyways~
Here's my tank:

I put up two pics, on without paper in the back and one with black paper as a background. Which do you like better? Louie is flaring at the back paper so I'm not sure if I can leave it up.
I have really enjoyed putting this tank together. My first 'real' aquarium has given me a ton of pleasure! I had NO idea I would love doing this so much. I might end up getting another tank for the bedroom.

Wow love it!

My new tank has FINALLY cycled and received its new resident! His name is Captain Feathersword
I was a little bit worried about the filter but it doesn't seem to be causing him any trouble at all.

Helianthe, thanks for the compliment. I like your tank too. There's just something about natural, live plants. Your betta will be happy in that jungle. I made an effort to keep Louie's tank as 'naturally' decorated as possible. Real wood, live plants, live moss, natural rock. I worry about too much plastic in their water. Not that I don't think the fun-coloured tanks aren't pretty in their own way, but I like a more natural look in my tank. It must be because I'm old! Lol.
