Alejandro's bowl. (Temporary, and yes there is a top to it so he won't jump out, I made it out of a never-used "grease-splatter-cover". . it's round and made of mesh-type material and fits this bowl pretty well.I'm trying to figure out what kind of tank to get him right now. The water looks a little crappy in this photo probably because of the peat granules I am using to slowly lower the ph, our water here in Tucson is VERY hard and high ph. I did a pwc today and a few days ago.)

Reason: need to mention there is a top, before people start yelling at me :)
Well, I caved and bought my betta when I went to go get a 6.6 gallon bookshelf aquarium from Petco to cycle. So... I had to buy a 3 gallon critter keeper as temporary housing XD Its rather sparsely decorated for now, as I didn't know what all to buy as deco yesterday. He loves hiding in the plant on the left, and has explored the heater in the back thoroughly. Once I get his mansion set up, I'll definitely be posting pictures. For now, this is what he's living in
LittleWatty I have 2 of those 6.6 gallon bookshelf tanks (see above) and I like them. I like their shape, since I read bettas prefer to have swimming space across than up and down. Secretly I want to get a big bookshelf or two and just fill that thing up with more of these!

Alright, so Tim Burton was in a 2.5gal but I felt that it was still too small for him so I bought a 5 gal tank. My heater finally came in and I bought ph testing strips, a thermometer, and an ammonia detector oh and the tank came with a filter so I have it on low flow so there is some movement in the water but not too much. I also bought a Marimo Moss ball!! I love him hes so cute! His name is "Mossy" (orginal right? lol) anyway... the only thing I think I need to buy is one more plant but a taller one so he has a hiding/resting spot. What do you guys think?
That looks so good! I love that you named your moss ball "mossy". And I love the reflection of a mustached man on your tank, possibly from a TV? lol
