Seki I have that same background on 2 of my tanks and I love it. I feel like it looks good with real or fake green plants everywhere. We actually got it first for my "spazzy" betta saying, "it's zen .. maybe it will make him chill out!". (It didn't).
Show us more pics when you have a new betta in there :)
Maybe they are stressed and maybe they aren't, hard to tell with the young ones. It's usually okay to keep young bettas together without stressing them but as they grow and show aggression or when you're able to sex them or when they get their colors is when you definitely should consider separating them. A grown betta in the mix, I already know the tank is a little "awkward". I think his young bettas are lucky right now that the adult male is not aggressive towards them yet, kind of like having neon tetras with a male.
And a side note, bettas bred here are mostly for show and not to fight
Yes, but the male is pretty old. Considering there are not much decorations, he'll be ready to attack. True, but Betta Splendens need to be kept alone unless breeding and sorority reasons. They're more aggressive then some species of Bettas.
I also have that background lol! I just got it in this week from an online purchase..looks great! Love seeing everyones tanks! everyones tank is so unique and different from one another, so many different artistic views and styles, makes it so fun!
This was the start (ive only had moonie a little over a week)
then he upgraded a tank because i could get a cheap enough hood with light for the other tank
and now I finally present...Moonies updated home :)...I just got some java ferns and anubias in the mail to add to the tank but for right now they are in qt

Nice tank updates the last couple of days, love your tank fairy! And friendlyfishies love the Buddha! It's awesome!
So I've devided my tank yesterday! And so ar it looks good, they're all happy now, and for Friday night I put Astro in a small breeding net thingy, coz the females were start nibbling on his tale, and he made a bubble nest!! Really, he never made such a big bubble nest before.
But anyway, will post pictures later! Thanks again
Wow, Seki, that white river going under the bridge is really cool!
Thank you! It might be my favorite part of the whole setup. LOL
@teeneythebetta - Spider monkey, huh? hahahaha It's so funny, I asked my fish if he wanted to be called Spider Monkey and he flared at me, then hid under his bridge. (Yep, I talk to my fish. He's a good listener! hahaha)
@LebronTheBetta - thank you!
Friendlyfishies - I love your little pagoda! I was so torn between that one and the one I got... yours looks so rustic! And isn't the background great? I love how serene it is. I've been to a Japanese Garden at an arboretum in my state, and it was so peaceful... I have a picture from the Japanese garden that is very similar to that background, so when I saw it in the store, I knew I had to have it!
