Mugs that are clean and soaked a few days (to get the soap off) work, silken flowers that have no metal, no fake scents and none of that flakey, powerdery fake pollen stuff on them can be used (soak in warm but not hot water for 3+days to see if color leeches)..ummm..

Small glass cups, shot glasses, snifters, etc can be used and look cool as caves or filled with gravel or marbles. If its full of something, make sure the fish cant get in and get trapped..

UHHMM.

FFF Idk D;

I have small stone figurines that I got from a cavern (t rex shape LOL!) that are polished and sealed and safe in my tanks. I soakd them a while beforehand.

Wedge a small, soft, pliable material between the top of the rim and bottom of the cover, just enough to prop open but enough to stay closed and warm/humid. I do that with my tanks.

Aquarium sealant, dried into a thick thick strip for a few days, is soft enough to work :<

I know that either thecryscat or Arashi Takamine uses those jar thingies. Are they heated? If theyre the 2G kind, you may have an excuse to get 2 more bettas after these guys move to their 10G

First off let me say there are some really amazing tanks on here, and some really beautiful bettas.

Below I have a Marina gold fish tank that is 2.65 (such weird size lol) gallon tank.




This is Noni my moon tail betta, I had no intention of getting a betta but when i saw him he was beautiful so i got him.


He is blue and the tips/edges of his fins are white, and he has two red little fins underneath him.




This is Mr Grooper, he is a cat fishy bottom eater, sorry i cant remember the type of fish he is. I also got 2 ghost shrimp, do you think that is too much for such a small tank?




On my wish list to get soon are a leaf hammock for Noni, and a tank heater, and also filter refills.

Do you think i need the air stone, i havent really had it on because the filter is pretty powerful and when i have the air stone on Noni looks like he has trouble swimming.

Also i want to add a light to it.

Ghost shrimp do not really contribute to the bioload all that much.
However the cory that you have needs to be in a larger tank and in a group.
