Thank you! I love the stump, glad the bf spotted it on the bottom shelf! I was worried it would take up too much room but I think it fits the tank nicely.

Your betta is also beautiful! Is he a HM or am I just imagining things?
Thanks!! I have a Canon EOS 30D with a macro lens attachment. Definitely going to try to get some better pictures of Eko when he's not being so shy (he pretty much hung out at the back of the tank while I was taking pictures). And yes he is a half moon! Had to double check the cup he came in, haha.

Uh oh... Lol, I'll have to look into getting some mesh then to make sure Aoi doesn't get himself stuck. (Currently his new favorite place is hiding behind the water filter) though, it's a small filter >:3
So I can still see his tail poking out from behind it, hahahah!~

I actually just cut a piece from a bag of onions and rubberbanded it on for the time being. I might get some plastic craft mesh and make a more permanent (and prettier) modification. Or, as someone else suggested, you could just take out the tube and under-gravel filter and put some sort of decoration with a hole in the top where the tube was, so the light will still work properly. Here's the thread for more details: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=73648

Thats cute. If I get another snail, Im naming it a vacuum name.
yup, like the vacuum. this is the 2nd pleco we have had, the other was about 6 yrs ago and his name was Eureka. he lived in a 33 gal with a guppy colony and was quite happy. We moved and Euraka, his guppies, and the tank where rehomed and is still going strong and healthy.
Dyson has moved to a 20 gal and now has the start of a guppy colony with him. 3F and 1M guppy. I think it needs a few plants, but hubby likes this.
Harper has a barebottom now and I plan to divide it...maybe...or just get another tank(s) for more betta(s) boys
first pic 10g, 2nd is 20gal

Sadly, he outgrew my 38 gal. so had to trade him in. :(

Here are the temporary homes of two of my dragons. I'm setting up a divided 10g for them and another dragon that I have. And usually there's a piece of paper up between them, but I took it away for the pic.

Has anyone used these cookie jars from walmart for a betta home before? I was wondering if I was able to put the covers on properly (there's no seal on the covers) or would that block off the air supply for the fish?

That would definitely block off the air supply. Don't do it. It looks like you could make a cover with a piece of craft mesh, however.

The covers are currently tilted enough so that air can get in, but snails can't get out. :)
