Ares, his home and a remodel for Zeus (image heavy)

For the past couple weeks I have been nursing a friends sick betta back to health, he had fin rot and an inflamed gil, the fin rot is almost gone and the gil is about 70% better than it was, and getting better every day. My friend said I can keep him since I got him healthy again I bought him a proper home today, another 5.5 gallon, remodeld Zeus' home a bit, and got him 5 ghost shrimp as tank mates and algae eaters, so far so good, he will swim up and check them out but not even flare, they leave him alone.

I love Ares....but I think Zeus is funny. They can be so gumpy! But they are adorable when grumpy!

I seriously love the natural look of your tanks D: it's so beautiful, kinda like this zen kinda feel lol

I have a question about plants though. I've been considering investing into real plants, do I was wondering; are they difficult to take care of?

Thanks everyone! It depends on what kind of plants you get. Everything I have is low light requirements, and will live and grow in as little as 1.5w per gallon. I have 8w per gallon on Zeus' tank, and 2.8w per gallon on Ares'.

I do a 25% water change every wednesday, just scooping out and re adding. On Sundays I do 25% using a gravel vacuum. I add 3 drops of fertilzer with each water change.

I always love seeing pictures of your tank and betta! You did Ares a lot of good by getting that tank and decorating it so beautifully :) I love your taste!!!

Thanks everyone. Ares has become ALOT more active since coming out of the gallon quarantine cube and moved into his new home. He is not fully healed yet, but enough that a larger filtered tank with some live plants will make him happy and speed up the rest of the healing.

I am done medicating him now, the rest will be up to his now stronger immune system and twice a week 25% water changes and once a week gravel vacuum.

In a couple months when his tank is cycled fully I'll get some cherry shrimp for his tank. Hopefully he gets along with them as well as Zeus does with the ghost shrimp in his tank.
