I know it's small. An actually it just kinda started out as a project to see what I could do. Went back for more of the plastic grass (it's in there) and I wound up finding a new shipment of betta's in! I now have a red comb VT with silver/blue highlights. <3 an he's still young and growing. but still unnamed. Sadly I can't put out another 50 bucks for another 1.5 gal set up. So he's going to be my desk partner with daily water changes.

That was Mr. Ed's bowl. before I knew better. However now that I know better it won't be as bad. if his color starts to fade I'll have to money pinch and put out the $50. I do have a thermometer though, just hasn't made it in yet. An the small gap underneath is enough room for a mini mini heater that I found that keeps the water like ten degrees warmer then the room. Though when I get it in I'll be doing a test without my fish in there! But hopefully it all works out!

@misamiania I really love that short little grass! I wanted to get some for my tank to make it feel like the dinosaurs were real, but I haven't see any. Where did you get them?

I found them at my LPS but I searched online for you. Here's a link that has a bunch, so you can pick where you'd like to get it from. Good luck!

I don't see how you have to shell out $50 for a 1.5 gal. You could spend $10 for a critter keeper or $2 for a rubbermaid container. You won't even need to buy gravel or any of that... Tetra presets are only $15... Your setup is hardly better than the cup he came in.

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum. :) I have my first betta fish, Libertine, in a 10 gallon with a decent filter, heater, and live plants. He is such a pleasure to watch! I can't wait to get him some companions.

Here is his set-up:

I agree with Alex. I got a 3 gallon Kritter Keeper at PetCo for only $12.99. Don't make the excuse that it's too expensive. You don't need $50 to get a decent tank!

This is only temporary. It's not his forever home. Just until I get my paycheck next month. When I mentioned pinching I was referring till the end of the month not forever. An $50 is cost to get out of town where I can buy it, plus buying it, and getting back home. Tank is only 14.99 at my local walmart for a 1.5 gal like my others. My truck eats gas like I breath air.
