This is my Betta tank I set up, I don't have any plants yet but I am going out to buy one and am breaking down and getting a walmart Betta. Will post a picture of how it turns out once I buy and grow some plants. Also sorry for the poor picture quality the tank doesn't have all those water spots on it, i had taken the picture after i finished putting everything in so stuff got splashed around

Welcome to bettafish.com

Your tank looks great for your new betta fish. Let us know if you need any help with naming him or her once you have posted a picture.

It was a walstad tank and something went wrong with my setup. Very little plant growth other than my 4 leaf clover (which was slow as well) so I dumped the whole thing, replanted the plants in some petco black sand. When I dumped the soil it smelled kinda bad like eggs and I saw the occational burp of bubbles so I knew the soil went anerobic and my betta now has tail rot within a week! I knew the quality of the water was bad. Hopefully this helps Ted (the guy in my profile picture) heal up. He's an old guy and has been through SOOOO much in my learning about aquariums. He's almost 5!

Plants from Left to right (incase anyone is wondering)
Sunset Hygro (green cept for the top leaves which are kinda pink)
Xmas moss and Anubias on driftwood.
Cryptoparva infront of sunset hygro
Rotatila Indica (green and pink) behind anubias in picture
Wisteria to the right of driftwood
4 leaf clover (Marselia quadrifolia)
Random small amazon in back corner. I have its brother in my 46 and it's ginormous. I hope this one stays small. Seems to stay the size of the aquarium oddly enough.




PS The nerite is dead and I kept the shell. The MTS is real. I made a point to save it and a couple of it's babies. I like MTS
Really really jealous of your tank lmao, beautiful healthy plants!

Argh, this thread is so distracting, I'm supposed to be writing an essay! This time next week I'll be finished uni for the semester and I can start thinking about setting up my new tank :)
Btw Betta Bonnie - did you name Chang after Community? If so you are my favourite person ever.

Woo hoo!! So excited! I found java moss at one of our lps' s!!! This stuff is impossible to find around here, I'm really glad I stopped by there. The man who helped me was very informative, polite and helpful. I had stopped going there before because of the rude, irritable college and high school kids that worked there.
It looked a lot better this time and the fish and other animals looked healthy.
Anyway, I got a nice bunch of java moss for $3!!! ^^

So here's what redone 5 gal critter keeper looks like.

Wow RowdyBetta, how do you keep the substrate so clean? I could never survive cleaning white sand.

This is my tank, a divided 10 gallon.
