Nice tanks! I wish I had the space to give all 7 of my fish such large homes! Unfortunately, they all live in only 3 or 5 gallons each.

Yeah, I'm already at my space limit with those three. I already have to move their tanks, because I got new bedroom furniture and the tanks are in the way of setting it up ;-; I dread moving the two 10gs. The 14g I wont have to move until we put together my new desk.

The best part, is that I paid nothing for those tanks.
The two 10g's were going to be 15$ altogether, but the guy said nothing about it so we got them for free XD The hoods we had to buy though :/

The stump, background, and heater are new (though the heater the kit came with had such cheap suction cups, I broke them while trying to attach them, so took the ones from the 5g's heater and used them instead).

The "gray tree root" is from Petsmart, for $25, and is fake/plastic. Extremely sturdy, minimal sharp edges, and is awesome

Day 1 flora:
1- micro sword (left, front)
1- anachris (right, back)
1-frill plant/fox tail (left, back)
1-Hygrophila which I broke into 2 parts. (front, off-center-right; right, front)

Day 1 Fauna:
1- Male Betta
2-Leopard Cories (the reason I had to buy a bigger tank! Surprise fish gifts are great, gave me an excuse to go bigger). (note #2, I'm getting more next weekend, want to make sure that the cycle jump-start was a success).

Just a few photos, some in the next post too... I'll make a topic as well, so I can put more of them and record its progress :)

Note, hard to photograph straight on with the bowfront tank, so some angles always end up looking blurry.

My female betta's home. She was originally in my 28 gal riparium but she got very aggressive with the cories (but not the platies for some reason) so I had to take her out. It's a soil based tank - about 1.5 inches of miracle gro- capped with sand. This is a no tech tank. It's warm in california so no need for a heater, all light for the plants is provided by the sun.

What size is that and shouldn't it be covered?

Otherwise, pretty cute!

It's a gallon. I plan on upgrading my male betta's tank - then she could have his old 2.5 gal. It is not covered. Covering it would greatly reduce the amount of light the plants would get i'm afraid. It's been like this for a few weeks.

I believe the worry is that since bettas are known to jump you may come home to a very sad picture.

You set up the fluval really nice. I also love the tank(s) in the background of the unboxing video!
