Thought i'd post updated pics of my two betta tanks. Both tanks have live plants that have flourished.
The first is Artemis's tank (5G). Her's has java fern which came as 1 tiny plant and is not two huge plants, 1 half is in her tank the other is in my puffers tank. It is also propagating like crazy! Also in her tank is a banana plant and hygrophilia (just trimmed the top off it and put it in qt to go in the puffer tank).
Next is Oji's tank (3G). His sword is coming along nicely and the banana plant i put in there is doing okay too.
My old guy Cleo was having troubles swimming and he was having troubles eating his food.. so I had to take him out of the 10 gallon. I switched him into the 3 gallon and put picasso into the 10...Cleo is now eating? and Picasso is hyper and happy! I added some new twigs to the 10 gallon:
I have been meaning to switch over to sand again but haven't had time to get around to it yet...I am thinking about leaving some of the gravel in the corners and edges of the tank to help anchor the plants and just do the sand in the open swimming area in the middle front.
When you say twigs, and I see them in the tank, are they store bought or did you use ones off the ground? I'm curious.. I love natural looking tanks and anything I can find/make on my own, the better lol.
Namazzi: I absolutely love the design of your tank ^.^ The way it's shaped along with the light is aesthetically appealing! I can't wait to see a pic once you deck it out hardcore with plants!! It's gonna look AWESOME!!
hehe. Thanks! My brother got it from a pet store that was closing for super cheap, used it for a while, and then asked if I wanted it. Of course I said yes!
And me too! I had a few live plants in there a while back, but they didn't do very well. I may have to go with some fake plants.
5.5G divided for the Aquabid boys, who should have been here this morning but the postal system sucks so now I'm freaking out.
This is before I put the filter in... which is ridiculously noisy (for me, I'm super fussy). Anyone else get away with a 5 gallon unfiltered? Or bad idea? I've never done anything between 3G and 10G so this is kinda new territory for me.
