She needs that much gravel to root the plants. Since it's a 6 gallon, he still has at least 4 gallons to swim in. It's fine, but it's good that you're looking out for the fish, BettaMiah.

Oh, okay! Just a suggestion. I also have that problem with my plants. So I just pile the gravel up in that one spot.

And for the looking out for the fish- Always. ;)

It's sand, not gravel, so nothing gets trapped - rather, the debris sits on top of the sand and is easily sucked out when I do water changes. I'm not sure what you mean when you say that if there is less, it would be easier to do water changes. I don't dump the tank - I use a siphon.

At least I got most of the duckweed out.

Ugh, your tank looks amazing. I wish I bought that tank instead of my 10 gallon. The more width the more Betta friendly it is.

Oops! Lol. Yeah, sand is good.

It is better with a siphon because then you don't have to go though all of the thick substrate. Thus taking more water out.

Hello all,

Here is my betta's new 5 gallon tank that I just upgraded from a 2.5 gallon. I used floramax substrate and just got some cuttings of plants from my big tank. Hopefully they will take off. I have a aquaclear 20 filter to keep good water quality. I also have one tiger snail and a amano shrimp in there to keep the algae down. Tell me what you guys think.

Dragonii, beautiful tank! Where did you get that beautiful sand? I have never seen sand in that color before.
