Neptune, the Sea God!

Here are the pictures of our new Betta, Neptune. (Sorry for the drop in picture clarity. I have a crappy camera :( )

Thank you! Do you think we need to add stuff into the tank, say plants, maybe some fine gravel or so?

What size is your tank going to be? You can use gravel or glass gems. A couple of plants would be nice, silk or real but real plants mean more work. lol You can get decorations at Walmart, Petsmart or Petco or just about any lfs. I have the same No Fishing sign in my 4 gallon. :)

I mistyped when I said 'tank', it's actually the bowl you see in the picture. We have the glass gems, but are they good enough in themselves or do we need to get some real gravel (the sand variety)?
We're all for real plants, never mind the work. As long as our little friend is happy, that's it! :D

your bowl is set up nice, bettas prefer plants that reach the top of the water so they can rest. since they breath from the top of the water they like to rest on plants and lift their heads up to get air. beautiful fish!

The glass gems are fine. I find them easier to clean than gravel. I don't know anything about plants so I can't really advise you there. I think you would need something that wouldn't take over the bowl.

> There really isnt any type of plant that you can put inside a 1 gallon without leaving the fish enough room to swim....
