I dont think it'll be an issue. If you begin to see tears, then immediatley remove it. My bf has that silk one, theyre really nice looking.
If I may recommend, I think shrimp need a few friends to party with. Im uncertain, but if you want the compatibility section will be able to aid you better. That way, every fishie's happy!
And nel, I might go look at the fish tomorrow after an appt. If he's there, I think Id grab him up. Unless another one steals my heart...Idk! :O
cool, hope he's still alive and healthy when the time comes along for him and you. looks like i'll have to buy some sort of wire mesh for my 2.5, nelliel is a jumper when the lid is down. he seems ready to eat but i have try to find the right frozen food for him. he spat out a pellet then ignored it, not that its surprising atm.
Spectrum's tank. It's 2.5 gallons. The little orange "plant" is plastic, but it's fairly soft. I'd like to keep it in there, however, the betta is much much much more important than fake stuff and I'll remove the plant if people think it needs to be removed. The plant on the right is silk, although it still has some plastic components. There is one ghost shrimp in the tank (in the photo: just to the left of the orange plant) and so far, aside from being surprised by its sudden appearance, the betta seems to be tolerating its presence just fine.
I very much appreciate and welcome any and all suggestions. :]
Everyone here has such nice tanks.
I love the blue pebbles ontop of the gravel. It looks nice.
Chicklet's post was in 2009... She hasnt been on in a month... You might not get a reply from her. They look like minibows, though.

I had the tetra thing... IMO, its not really worth the money. While others may disagree, I think for the price you can find a better, stronger and larger tank. It is hard to clean out with the light there. The wires are coated but exposed under neath and the metal port for the light rusts really easily.
Mine didnt last very long. The plastic is highly reflective and my fish constantly flared at himself. The black rim on top separates from the plastic (both the tanks did this), the filter is only so-so and noisy, even when you wrap the noisy airrator. The light wont grow plants and doesnt illuminate it well. In time, the adjustable light may lose its ability to stay up and will slip and not lift.
IMO, a badly made tank for the price. :(
For the same price (In the US) you can get a 5 gallon full kit.
