Itumeleng

I bought Itumeleng about a week and a half ago. He's my first betta. It took two of my friends and me about an hour to convert an everyday coffee maker into a comfortable living area for a betta fish (modifications include a nightlight operated by the power switch of the coffee maker and food storage). All in all, I have really enjoyed having him. So much so that I moved him accross the room to be on my desk.

looks cool, but its really small..... bettas should be in no less than a 2 gallon heated tank, and males need even more room.

Very cool how you converted the coffee maker, BUT he does need to be in at least 2 gallons to be comfortable. Plus, Bettas need heat (a steady 78-80 degrees F), plants, and a nice little hiding place/cave.

I removed the heating element from the coffee maker for fear of pranks (I live on a college dorm). I'm in the process of looking for a small coffee cup or mug to put in there for him to have a place to hide. The pot holds a little less than a gallon of water. It looks much smaller in the picture than it is. I didn't do a whole lot of research before I bought him, so I am adapting his habitat the more I learn.
