Yes all very nice indeed!

I went to Walmart today, They have a nice white male Betta there I wouldn't mind getting,
But, their not selling until tomorrow, Bummer,
They didn't get any females in this shipment either,
Might try to get down early tomorrow and get that Male.

I did purchase 40 new fish yesterday tho,
Platies and Swordtails and hubby bought me another 10 gallon tank for my birthday, What a sweetie :)

Talking My micro aquarium

Here's the best pics I've been able to take of my aquarium. It's only 1.5 gallon but the filter does 100 gallons and hour. The water's a little cloudy because I stirred up the gravel putting in the flower pots. The fish is a male betta (Siamese Fighting Fish) and was just put into the aquarium. The green is live Java Moss and minor algal growth on the sides of the tank. It's lit by a single 10Watt Compact Flourescent 6500 degree Kelvin lamp. The water will clear to near crystal in a few hours. There's also a single Ghost Shrimp in the tank, the second one died just tonight.

Sark

PS: OH! His name is Yurei. That's Japanese for "Ghost"



















I had to diffuse the outlet water from the pump to make it calm enough for a betta to live. I was inspired by this DIY project on Instuctables.com (I LOVE this site, I get lost on it for hours.) My diverter is different in that it's mostly submerged, open on the right AND left sides, has holes, and spiral grooves that reduce the current by twisting the water to use up the energy of the flow.

Sure, here ya go: http://www.instructables.com/id/How_...ter_with_Just/

Here's my version and a video of it in use:

I know how to take much better pics, unfortunately my camera's very old and nearly useless.

really wish people would downsize their picture sizes in kb,
It kills me dead in the water with so many big pictures that I have to avoid these threads.
Unfortunately there is still alot of us forced to use dialup.

Thanks Jingle

I love the Galleon in the tank, got it for a really good price from a Seller on ebay
Yes my avatar is a pic of Shimmer, he`s my first ever Betta but I`m sure there will be some more to follow! lol

I added some led lights to the tank today seeing as the hub and the lights are mega cheap in my local aquatic shop at the moment, it certainly gives the tank a different look.
