Smile Marina's new tank (Pic heavy)

Well, I found out yesterday that Marina's cave was stressing her out. I'm assuming it way the light was reflecting off of it... because it only occurred when the light was on. After the light turned off she lost the stress stripes. Sooo this gave me a reason to go shopping for plants and a new decoration! :) I redid her tank last night, and she no longer has her stripes, and she is happy as can be. I'm amazed at what can stress a female betta out lol...this is such a learning process (they are just so different than males).

I have such a hard time finding decor for the tanks. I literally go to Petsmart and stand there for 40-60 minutes just trying to decide. I think it took me 45 minutes to decide yesterday.

I have Red Cryptocoryne wendtii, Cryptocoryne undulata, and Kleiner Bar Sword. The sword is a hybrid between Echinodorus barthii and Echinodorus uruguayensis. And that tiny little bit of pennywort is the last reminisce of a failed attempt of plants from Maryland. I bought $20 worth of plants at my boyfriend's fish store (which is 2.5 hours from my hometown). I brought them home, and they all died. I'm assuming of shock from different water ph's and quality. But that last little piece is blooming well...so I have high hopes lol. The other small piece of plant is a propagation of one of the wendtii's I got.
