I recently added a filter to his tank and he's chipper as ever, the water being much cleaner than when I didn't have the filter.
I didn't use it previously because I had read Betta's like still water.
So this time with the filter I added a hose and divider to keep the water calm.
Also added a blue/white light and some juniper moss.
I think Sam's place is pretty stylin' now!
This is a really old crappy photo but u can kinda see behind the Japanese gate how the bubbles just shoot out and agitate the water so it splashes around:
Then I took the filter out, but recently put it back and added this hose.
But the water was still a little too wavy and I didn't have floating plants. Sam still wouldn't make a nest:
Blue light and hose and divider.
Tough to see but two fat springs of juniper moss are floating in the back.
See how nice and calm the water is outside:
With this set up I'm hoping Sam gets back into nest-building!
Thanks for looking
