Here's my tanks.
First one is Sushi in his 1.5 gal. I was going to put him in my divided tank but I think he likes being alone in his old age.
Second one is my new divided tank with my two new Bettas. I made the divider with that plastic craft mesh stuff and two peices of aquarium tubing. It works pretty well. They are slowly getting used to each other, they don't flare as much as they did at first.
I want to add more plants to the new tank. I'm waiting for some Java Moss to come in at the aquarium store where I live. Also, I'm thinking of adding a filter it too. I have Tetra Whisper filter for 1-3 gallon tanks (it came with Sushi's tank). I figure since it's smaller it won't have such a big current in a 5.5 gal tank but will it still do a good job? Is a carbon filter really necessary or should I use some foam instead so I don't have to worry about buying and changing the filters?
Nice tanks & pretty fish. One word of caution, though - does the clay pot on the left have the drain hole plugged? If not, you probably should (or break out the bottom & sand the edges). Bettas have been known to get their heads stuck in those holes & drown. :(
Good point. I had rocks piled up high in the corner to block the hole but that didn't work. He is small enough to fit through the hole (i've seen him do it) I'm going to break the bottom of the pot next time I do a water change. And move things around a little!
Yesterday evening I had to stop in petco to get a few things and I found a really cheap 10 gallon tank! (got it!)it was 41.99 with heater and everything!
Anyways...but like always I wandered over to the betta fish. I was really sad from earlier (my moms fish who I became attached to jumped right out of his tank). I felt really terrible about it.....but there was this betta who had been there for quite awhile. So, I picked him up and carried him around the store with me for awhile ..and..I couldn't leave him there. I cleaned out the 2 gallon last night and set him up in there. ( this time making sure to cover that 1x2 hole very..very well.)
I am going to get him some new plants in a few days!
