Primus my new betta

Name:  Tank of Primus.jpg

This is Primus' set up. He has a 5 gal tank, heater, thermometer, filter with baffles (intake and out flow), live plants, and decorations. He had a pet pleco (Duo) but duo apparently had velvet... in a fairly advanced stage by the time I figured it out... So Duo is no longer with Primus and I. I treated the tank and Primus is frisky as ever.

I'm going to have to add some cheese cloth or something to the sponge baffle on the out flow because Primus can see his reflection on the front of the filter and flares and such. Which would be OK except that the sponge is rather course and I can see where it has been shredding his dorsal fin a little.

After Duo we got four "ghost shrimp". Two of which are now in solitary for crimes against the tail fin. I caught them swimming after Primus and pinching his fins. So I'm not so sure if they are ghost shrimp or just mean ghost shrimp.

Primus has really brightened since I bought him. He has a lot more iridescent turquoise now. Oh! I can not resist: here's a pic of Primus.

Beautiful betta & tank, love the elephant! One thing, those white/green plants aren't entirely aquatic and will eventually rot, I learned the hard way!

Eatree, nice tank. I especially like the Laughing Buddah, and Primus looks primo.

Relic, I really like your aquascaping. Wish I had more room, time, and money to give it a shot.

That's good that the ones you purchased can work for the larger tank. You might even be able to push it for a 20 gallon long tank. You don't know if it was the aggression that killed the girl. She could of not been feeling good. And bettas being omnivores they likely indulged. I do feel you loss and hopefully things will work themselves out.
Oh right, it is Tetra haha I did get a thermometer, and it reads at about 80 degrees. Everything is great in the tank, I think the big gal felt bad about the little one dieing, and has decided to back off of being pushy as long as all her girls are in line. Thanks for relating!
