What a cute little home! :)
Laying on the bottom isn't always a good sign though- it's often a sign that they are too cold.

Is your tank heated? What temperature is his water?

He and I are both happier with the size and shape of this one (although I have had to finagle a way to baffle the filter strength).
That Fluval View is real nice :) But if it has a lid, then where do you fit the heater and its cord? Just curious, as I'd consider buying one if I get a second betta.

deso, here are a couple of photos looking down at the top. The first one is with the lid on and the second one is with it off (note that the foam is something I've added to reduce the water motion; there should be two charcoal filters slotted into the housing but I've removed them to medicate):




I have some other photos posted of the underside of the filter housing in a thread called fluval view filter baffle.

The filter housing is a plastic hollow column that fits into an arc jutting out from the back of the tank. The handle that lifts the housing out is that black part you see across the bottom of the second photo; it is also the LED lighting structure. The motor fits underneath the bottom of the housing unit (again, there are other photos in the other thread that might illustrate this better than I'm explaining it). The cords are all tucked into channels built into the housing.

Hello all!

I am brand new here, and a newbie when it comes to bettas. I did some research and got our first tank going today! This is a 2.5 gallon MiniBow tank, with live anacharis and our yet unnamed male dragon scale crown tail (that's what he was labeled as at the store, hopefully it's correct?). I hope I did a decent job for this little guy to start!





Kim

Today was my 3rd day of school and in algebra we played 2 truths, 1 lie,
So this girl next to me one of her truths was that she's afraid of fish.
