Plants growing too good I think, and fish doing well to survive my haste. (Fish-In Cycle). One of my corys lost one side of his barbels but they're growing back quickly and Bubbles is very sensitive to ammonia so my balance of needing ammonia and water changes is a fine line so my cycle is moving at a very slow pace.

Video shows current from Hagen AquaClear 20 on lowest setting in my tank.

LOL, I think the night shots look cool and show well the insides of the tanks!

What are the mostly square tanks with the black bands, Ben and Hughie's and two more in the next pic down? You have beautiful tanks.

Ya, I'm always posting day shots so I figured you guys could see them as I see them every night. They're all in my living room so I can keep an eye on them :) Those tanks are Tetra Water Wonder 1.5g, they're about ready for retirement as I'm dividing up some big tanks.

I kept the insulated panels the breeder used in Draco's shipping box and use them for screens between tanks that wind up with boys next to teach other.
I used to think fin size was the driving factor in whether a filter bothered a betta or not, but I recently lost a plakat to what I suspect was largely due to excessive stress from the filter. Now I'm rather obsessive about finding gentle filters for my larger tank. It's likely Barney just is one of those fish who doesn't like filters at all.

PS - 2 gallon hex tanks FTW~! I have three... need more! XD

Those tanks are cool :D
I guess having the bigger tanks that can be divided would save a little work and power outlets for all the heaters, lights and filters, huh?
Thanks very much for sharing your pics

Careful with those prickly plants there, tough.. I always forget and put one in a new tank and it's removed by the next day due to tearing my guys' fins. Bettas love plants and to swim around and through them, and even though they are soft, they are still spiky and they snag real easily.
