Recently I got back into my addiction with fish of all colors and shapes. I hanven't had a betta of any type since I lived in Korea when I was a bit younger. I picked up a Marina betta cube at a Goodwill for 4$ brand new, so of course my girlfriend and I rush out to grab a cute little fish. We found the most adorable crowntail and named him Sushi. Those little cubes work great, but we both feel bad keeping him in a half gallon tank...and she hates that I spend a lot of time cleaning it when she wants me to spend time with her :P. So I transfered him to my empty fluval edge until I get his new 2.5 gal tank setup tomorrow.
I plan on using a Tom Aquarium mini internal filter,and a hydor mini aquarium heater placed under the gravel. I'm going to use gravel instead of sand and make a small bamboo forest in one corner of the tank. Over time I would like to add in a bamboo shrimp, but for now I will keep him company with two Otto's.
I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with either product I'm going to use or if they had any other recomendations. I'll have pictures up soon.
