Here's my new betta setup; first timer here (not including a young experience). This is the initial setup, clear water (chlorine treated).

No fish yet. I am having him shipped in. This is a 5 gallon. (Fluval Spec V on sale for $63!) Trying to prep a nice new home! (The round ruins on the left have a wide sunken hiding spot)

Please contact me with any tips or suggestions.

I agree, the columns are a very nice touch.

Where did you find ones that would fit in the Spec V?

Thanks for the praise!

And I got those at PetSmart. I actually saw them there first, went online and didn't find anything the right size that I liked better, so I went back and got them at the store. They're from their "Top Fin" line. There are some much larger pieces that match those for people with larger tanks. I will say, though, that I think they're being discontinued because most of them were on clearance and they weren't even available on Amazon. PetSmart's site still has some the last time I checked.

Thanks! I prefer bigger rocks over gravel. I just think it looks cooler.

My boyfriend helped me pick out the decorations. He has really good taste in aquarium decor, which I just discovered this afternoon.

Here is my first attempt at dividing a 10g tank. Used a DIY divider. Do you all think there are too many plants? Too crowded?

Right now each boy has one real plant and hope to replace the fake plants with real ones over time. Any suggestions to make it better for my boys are appreciated as I am still new to bettas and want my boys to be comfortable.
