I currently have my fish, Marcel, in a 21 litre (5.5 gal) aquarium. I know the setup is quite bare and basic at the moment (I only got it today), but I plan to go back to the store very soon to buy a few more leafy plants to keep Marcel happy.

Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. Also, would anyone be able to tell me what kind of Betta Marcel is?

Cheers!
I think veiltail, and is that Cambodian coloring? -is not expert on color patterns-

A heater and thermometer is also highly recommended.

After some issues with this tank I decided to take out the plant substrate and replace it with sand and also replace the live plants with silk. I left one live plant, some anubias on a rock. This tank will be for my new HM.

update

an update of my boy's tank. got rid of the silk plants and replaced them all with live plants. a java fern, a crypt spiralis, a crypt parva, an anubias nana, an argentine sword, an unidentified plant (towards the front :/), and a moss ball. love the IAL too. not getting much tannins in the water right now because the current filter still has carbon in it (thought it woud have been exhausted by now).

This is my 10 gallon setup. I'm going to add some plants soon, but other than that I absolutely love it!

From left to right, Hercules, Sparrow, and Dionysus. Although I think Hercules and Dionysus are hiding in this picture.
