Thanks. The plants don't seem to be doing too great which the picture doesn't show(smaller echinodorus melting, vallis doesn't seem to be doing so good), though the colours are much more vivid in reality. The hygrophilia (tall one on the left) has grown more since that picture. It sort of looks overgrown, but I don't mind that. I think it sort of makes it feel more natural and pablo (my betta) seems to enjoy swimming through it.

15 gallon long, presently housing 6 female bettas + 3 pepper cories + 4 ghost shrimp. Have a mix of live and silk plants (plan on adding more next time Petco or Petsmart has another clearance sale on plants), it's a good sign the tank has a fair amount of cover when one can hardly spot the inhabitants in this pic

Is that a fluval chi? If it is and if you haven't already got a cover for it (I can't tell from the pic), it would be a good idea to get one so that he doesn't jump out. I think fluval make on especially for the chi now. I like the glass pebbles in the gravel :)

Yeah I just found out yesterday that shrimp commit willing suicide without a cover. Fish hasn't been an issue but I'm ordering a lid atm. Petsmart can't get them and we have no other local fish stores. Also just ordered a heater since I didn't have one. Luckily winter here has been 70+ degrees.

Sounds good. I'm sure there will be other places that sell lids apart from petsmart. Try putting it into google shopping search and you'll hopefully get results.

Yeah I ordered from Amazon (and a heater). I was rather sad that so few places sell them even online. There are tank packages with them but I got my tank at the local Petsmart lol. I learned so much on these forums recently my husband's sister was talking about fish and I told her to get a bigger tank! Goldfish in a 1.5G tank = not okay!

our "upgraded" tank, a 3.5 gallon tank from petsmart. basically it's petco's 3.5 gallon glofish tank. eventually i hope to add some live plants.



bigger was not better for our little tailbiter also, i think he really wanted to be where all the action is so we moved him to our family room which required a smaller tank. thankfully, his tail is growning back!
