Thanks Jupiter, Welsh (: The tank was originally meant to be a divided tank, but I decided there were too many flowers, LOL.

Welsh, I used to hate the look of terracotta pots, but they've grown on me. I'd like to do more with them. They're pretty, even if the girls don't really use them x3

Was just about to say the same thing Apocalypse.
I am using the 'shrimp in' method to cycle my tank, also using Nutrafin Cycle to give it a kick start. I started my cycle on Christmas eve and with my shrimp I have a good, high, constant source of ammonia and am starting to see some results. As of yesterdays results my Ph has stayed at a constant 8, my ammonia is at 8ppm, nitrite is at 5ppm and nitrate is at 7ppm.
There is a sticky on this site that details everything you will need to know about getting your tank to cycle. Best of luck

Xander's 2.5 gal has gone under some major remodeling. Silk plans instead of plastic, and lost the shark cave that began chipping paint. Now he has a coffee mug, which he seems to like just fine.

Thanks! I kind of tried to find colors that matched him - red and dark blue :D my fave colors.

With the room light turned off and tank light on its absolutely beautiful, I love the red light :)

Here are my Betta homes. I also have a 125 gallon African Cichlid Tank, a 10 gallon fry/hospital/quarantine tank. And a 20 gallon Console TV.

Here is Sophie's home - It is a 2.5 Gallon Heated Bowl.


Here is Zen's 5 Gallon Fluval Chi


And here is Spot's deal of the day. It's a 5 gallon tank I bought on Craigslist for $5.00 including light and filter.

All of those tanks have WAY TOO MUCH water in them, you need to remove a few inches. It looks like your fish might be able to easily jump out of the fluval since it's not covered. Plus bettas need surface air to breathe, in those tanks they don't have any.
