I guess it's up to you though. If you get it set up, let us see it!
Yeah I like a little extra gravel :) I like to make it higher around the outside. For this tank since it would be divided a bunch I wasn't going to use a filter for a 20 gal. Especially since it would be pretty strong for a betta. I was thinking my filter for my 5 gallon for one "section" then I have a filter for like a 1.5 gal I would put in another section. Plus I already have a heater
So I really wasn't looking into an aquarium kit, unless it was cheaper than the tank and hood bought seperately :) Thanks
