hidey holes

Try an anubis and maybe a floating betta log. Mine love sleeping there and the anubis is really hardy and gives them a leaf to lay on ----good luck!

LS..... are red leafed plants more expensive? Granted I've never seen any really nice ones at the typical store, but I've NEVER really looked the last time I was at a aquatics only store upstate.

I'll keep my eyes open.

WOW, that DOESN'T look like a 10G at all. But now that you mentioned it, it does look like one.

I had a big refund for 4 x 1.5 gallon tank kits to walmart and bought a ten gallon tank to divide for my 5 bettas. This tank has a few java ferns & 4 of clay pots and a sponge filter that would clean up to 20 gallons.



I also have an empty 5 gallon tank, I'm thinking to have my favorite purple male betta, Unicorn to "guard" for my room. I would add a driftwood & a few of java ferns and black sand. Maybe a few of ghost shrimps. c:

Cute! Did you put something in the holes on the bottom of the terra cotta pots? Bettas often try to swim through the hole and often get injured or die. I personally used aquarium foam & cut pieces that fit in the hole.

I didn't because those has very smaller holes. I bought them from home depot and they're mini clay pots. All of my bettas didn't try to go through it lol. They would see it and ignore it.

If I buy a decent sized (small or medium clay pots) I would stuff it in with plants or foams. Thanks for the warning.

Thanks. (:

I don't know why this struck me as funny but the latest betta I took home was one I saw in Petco forEVER and referred to as "Unicorn". What does your guy "Unicorn" look like, out of curiosity?

I would never thought to divide a 10 gallon FIVE ways. thats probably about a gallon or 1.5 gallons per betta when you include substrate, etc. . I have a 15 gallon divided 3 ways.....

Beautiful Tank!! Love it....but it's a bit crowded for 5 bettas. Maybe divide the 5g into two and only have four in the 10g?

I was considering dividing my 10 gal 3 ways but I felt that was too small. :l
