I soon found out I ordered too many silk plants so some of them don't have a tank yet lolololol.
loool that sounds really awesome, sometimes I'm iffy about silk plants because I'm not quite sure how they'll act in my aquarium, sometimes they droop to much, or don't bend the way I want, so I just try to do a mix-match of plastic & silk (no live plants for me - to much to worry about for now)

With one silk plant they droop sometimes if they're taller... Most of mine are in corners and propped up with the tank walls or in my sorority there's so many plants that they don't have room to droop! Lol. I'm just too skeptical about plastic plants... But I want live plants someday for my sorority tank.

This is my Ruty's home. It's a simple 5 gal with a 2-3 gal heater (stays about 76-77*) a 3-5 gal whisper filer set on low flow. He shares his tank with two ghost shrimp. I'm still fairly new to Betta fish and have a lot to learn yet. I'm looking into live plants and a more finer gravel for him but all we have around here is a pet store with an infestation of snails. I've had Rusty for about a month and he seems to be quite happy. His bubble nests can get quite large. I bought a little royal blue girl today. I found her at the dreaded Walmart. She's showing signs of Dropsy so if I can save her then I'll post her girly pad.

(Sorry for the poor picture quality)

My three year old grandson named our new pet Nemo (he loves Nemo, the movie!). Nemo is about 8 weeks old, and about 1.25 inches long; his deep blue color is what made me fall in love with him two days before I actually bought him - I wanted to find more info and what I needed before I bought him or any other betta if he was gone.
Beautiful tank. I'm pretty sure you have a little female

Jinxhex, thank you for the compliment on my tank, though to my horror, today my live plants are starting to look droopy... ugh...

If I have a female, I am OK with that. I loved the deep blue color, so I guess I will see when he/she gets older. Either way is OK for my first betta!
