I like your tank are those live plants? I wanna get another betta but I just can't afford to buy an aquarium like the one mine is in. I think I am going to buy everyone christmas presents before i blow all my money on fish hehe. Should I get a male or should I get a female to inspire my male betta to maintain his dang bubblenest?

Critter keepers are also easy to filter and heat..Though, filtering isn't necessary if you want to do 100% water changes. You can have live plants in a critter keeper. I use a desk lamp with a daylight bulb that has 6500K for my live plants.
Here is a photo of my critter keeper:
What kind of filter and can you post a pic of your light?

This is the tank I set up for Aquarius and Angel. They're coming over on Thanksgiving with my sister. I will be keeping them permanently. She just can't remember to change the water and wants them to have a good home. Aquarius will be going in the left and Angel in the right. Angel has a cave coming with her, so that's why I only have plants in her side. I also included pictures of the fish. Angel is a female CT and Aquarius is a DBTHM.

Um, no. Not 5 gallons. It's a divided 5 gallon. So about 2 gallons, since it left about an inch unfilled for safety. The bowl she is in wasn't too tiny, either. It's a gallon. So it's not that bad.

LOL. I'm not sure how it could look like a 10 gallon. That cave would have to be HUGE to fill up that much space in a 10 gallon. xD But, whatever. We all have our off days.

Wink Ponyo's new tank

I got Ponyo about two weeks ago at the last moment and he was sharing a 2.5 gallon with my other fish for a temporary arrangement until I found something. He was so pretty I couldn't leave him at Petsmart. My other fish figured out how to get over the divider, so I finally got them seperated and they are both in atleast 2 gallons and very happy. Here is Ponyo's new palace, thanks to everyone here! Its a 2 gallon Jar with heater all for him to enjoy with new silk plants and a castle made for a king!

A video of my Betta, Bowie, in his new home. I will be adding more things for him to play with and plants over the next couple of weeks. He's still not sure what to do with all the extra room he has, though he was this active in his old tank as well.
