Dragonfly's Kritter Keeper This is my Betta's, Dragonfly, home! Currently a Kritter Keeper, will eventually upgrade when I can afford to. He seems very happy! Active, hungry little man. We THINK he is a Super Delta or a Halfmoon, need to get some flaring pictures so people can help me identify.

Looks nice and colourful. I'd advise you think about add some more cover though, eg on the higher 'levels' of the tank. Its always important when keeping females to have heavy cover, so they can establish territories and hide if need be. Some tall, silk plants would do great.

SO, while doing a 100% wc this weekend, I decided the kids tanks were just too barren looking. So, grabbing some older silk plants I wasn't using and stuck em in. Mehtinks it looks much better. Also redid The light fixture on Ankou's tank. No more dealing with having to tape the lights to the back of his tank anymore!





And for those wondering, no, the tanks are not nearly as bright as the pics show them to be. They're actually relatively dim in person.

Keep in mind the water temp will be at least a few degrees cooler then the temp of the room- the smaller the tank, the colder it is and faster it fluctuates which can become deadly.
As well as I suggest not to leave the lights on 24/7, as they need a day/night schedule to get the needed "sleep" to restore their bodies such as we do- a light on 24 hrs will cause them to become restless and not get enough rest.
Both of those (the cool water and not enough rest) will cause their immune system to be weaker, more lethargic.. the excess light could cause stress.
If the light has to be on, I suggest partially wrapping the tanks (the sides facing the light) to give them some cover of darkness.

Great size tank, good number of girls, but I highly recommend a lot more cover- with sororities you have to be very careful and specific- as they are just as aggressive as males and could turn at any time.. so one must give them the best chance to hide and cover when being chased. Lots of medium to tall plants are a must for sororities- you should break the lines of sight at least 3 ways when looking from the side view of the tank.. place the plants close to the front and back to give them the feeling of security and so they can set up their own territories.
Having a bare tank will cause problems, it's just a matter of when it happen. And even when everything is perfect, things still happen most of the time- so all we can do is give them the best opportunity to live safely.

Don't mean to harp, but wanted to throw out some tips. Good luck!

Will turn the lights off so they do get the cycle...I do have a thermometer that measures the temp and it hasn't fallen below the minimum yet....Thanks for the tips!
