Sand bottom with two Anubis plants and one Java Fern. There's no thermometer because I broke it =( Beyond that I think it looks great!
Like the look its very simple :D
FYI the rhizomes of the java fern need to be above the substrate or it will slowly die

Ah, thank you! I just got some rocks from outside and cleaned them before attaching the Java fern to it. I actually should put the updated picture here. Did this a few hours ago.

First time trying to post a pic, can you see it? :-S
You can't see the third betta but its a 10 gallon divided into three sections, first betta is blue, red, aqua, white and black and is a halfmoon from petsmart. His name is Jace.
Second is a gray, pink, blue, red and black dragon scale from petsmart. His name is Marble.
Third is gray, pink, blue, red and black halfmoon from family owned petsmart. Got him yesterday and he's un named, don't know what to name him!
The third looks just like marble but with a halfmoon tail

I don't have heaters because the bettas are all in my room at a comfortable 78 degrees. I like it warm year round. So I thought I was ok there. I love not having substrate. It is a breeze to clean and my crazy fish love to eat off of the floor so I have kept it very simple. I am using Whisper 25i filters and hate them! Am looking into sponge and corner filters. The corner filters work a little differently now with airstones vs using just an airline attached to filter. Airstone is a better way to go. Still making up my mind.

No worries... it's really not. The rhizome color just blends in with the black of the sand. It's basically just sitting on top--heavy enough to just sit. Will probably anchor to driftwood later this week. Thanks, tho! =)

I LOVED how cheep it was :D I work almost minimum wage so I don't make a lot of money and being able to save any bit is super awesome :D
Also, they were these small LED lights that came with the lid, not sure their exact name :/ Sorry
