To be honest, I have no idea. I went on a trip to Idaho and there was this little pet shop right by our hotel! The ornament was only $2 and my boyfriend plays saxophone so it fit :P

Hmmm did they have lots of other cool sculptures too? If you remember the name, I'd so get on their site and order one if I could...

Show & tell time! These are still works in progress I'm planning on them being heavily planted (gradually).

1.) Wispy in his 10-gallon. He has a water sprite (one of the stems forming a funny angle there...) & a rock ornament. The writing is from the sticker and I've been lazy about scratching it off lol



2.) Alpha (formerly "Fishbert") in his 10-gallon, with a sprig of water sprite, floating log, silk plant, and a bit of java moss which I'm hoping will eventually grow all over the rock ornament.



3.) Beta (new guy) in his 10-gallon Tetra halfmoon tank with some silk plants, water sprite, & floating log.



4.) Moondance in his 5-gallon. He was originally in a 10-gallon but seemed totally overwhelmed so I switched him out with Alpha who was in the 5-gallon and now they're both happy. He has a big ol' water sprite, a floating log, a bit of java moss and a little java fern starting out. This tank would definitely benefit aesthetically from a black or dark green background, to hide the wires & to create a contrast with Moondance's color.

That halfmoon tank is really nice! Where is it from? And your tanks look really nice! I really like the 5 gallon (I like my tanks really planted)

Thanks so much! Yeah, planted tanks rock, don't they? I used to prefer ornaments over plants but after seeing how much the fish appreciate resting on and swimming through soft leaves....awww. Had to change my preferences too.

I got the halfmoon tank from ebay...it was almost exactly $100 with shipping included. Yep, kinda pricey! I wouldn't recommend it for a halfmoon betta because I learned the hard way that the vertical distance is really tough for an un-streamlined fish with such heavy fins. Beta the veiltail is having a blast though...he's all over the darn thing!

P.S. Jade is gorgeous! So sleek. I wish I can have a kitty (husband's allergic :( )

Patriot's New tank setup. :) I haven't been on long enough to post anything in FOREVER.
Aaanyways this is what operation re-habitation looks like.
I've baffled the old filter and got my hands on some tetra safe-start to help me do a fish in cycle. I also have an ammonia alert cling inside the tank from sea chem along with an honest to god tank test kit instead of the fiddly little test strips.
Hopefully all goes well. He got all excited watching me set it up and I currently have him in a 1 gallon jar, when I woke up this morning he had built a bubble nest! Something he hasn't done in over a week and a half!
I hope he likes it.

Suggestions for decor are welcome! :)

Thanks Randomfish! I think she's pretty cute too... and that's too bad, allergies suck. My friend had to give away her two dogs cause her mom was allergic. LucyLoofa, your picture doesn't work ):
