Hey all.

Well, I went a bit over board. but for GOOD reason.

I have 3 year old Autistic twin girls, When we went to the Aquarium Store to pick up a new home for Mr Humphries, something very cool happen, this store has a HUGE floor level Aquarium setup, with HUGE pleco's, Coe and turtles Well my wife positioned the girls in front of the coe in their double stroller, and the most amazing thing happen, they were mez'd by the coe They were laughing at them and trying to get to the tank, must have been close to 30 in this tank. if anyone here knows anything about autisum, this is a MAJOR break through, So me and Pat(wife) decided right there we were getting a bigger tank. so.....................

We bought a 20 Gal, got a good deal on it, and we picked up Mr Humphries some friend, 4 Tetras, 2 neon and 2 Rosy. I have the tank setup and the tetras are in it, I want to give it a good 12-24 hrs before I put MR H, into the tank. the girls BTW can't keep away from the tank
they were crying when we said is was time for their nap :)

Thanks to this site and all the great info, i would never had gone to get
a bigger tank, and we would never have seen the reaction to the coe.

You've made a HUGE difference in our daughters lives.. Thanks SOOOOOOOO much.

Here are a couple pics of the tank, MR H isn't in it yet, I hope by mourning I can put him in.

Aww, I'm so glad our little betta corner of the internet has helped you, and ultimately your daughters. That is great news! My husband's niece is autistic and loves my vast array of bettas. lol. I have 13... anyway. Congrats. I'm glad things are going well. That's a beautiful tank. I would suggests some silk plants, though. Betta's love plants....and walmart has these cute little "Lilly pads" They are only a couple bucks and my guys love them!

Looks great! What a great discovery about your daughters.
I agree with the above, more plants and hiding spots would be great in that tank. :D

Hey Guys,

UPDATE!

Mr H is in his new home, and he is loving it, his fins are out and wide, swimming around and chasing the smaller fish, but not attacking them, I took a few pics of the tank, and Sophia, she is totallty mez'd by
Mr H. We are gonna let the tank settle a bit, then pick up some live pants, and a bottom feeder of some kind, still havn't decided on what yet, And the pics :) Enjoy

Thanks

Don
