Getting new 10 gallons maybe?

Hopefully if all goes as planned I will be getting 3 more 10 gallon tanks..One for each of my boys and one for my "moms" betta. I'm planning on haveing all live plants and a few silk...And lots of hideing places also a betta log. Are there any decorations your bettas really like?? And are there any live plants your bettas prefer or like?




Thanks,Kayla

WOW!!! A 10 gallon for each of your boys? They're as colse as they're gonna get to heaven in your set up! =]

I suggest going all out and planning an aquascape for at least one tank! =] I mean since you're gonna be setting them up new and since they're gonna be so big and all. =]

Here are some plants I think are pretty! =]

Java and christmas moss
Hornwort
Amazon Sword
Dwarf Hair Grass
Dwarf Lily*****<- Stunning IMO. Wish I could buy some online! >.<
Anubias =] Bettas love these if I remember correctly. =]
Moss Balls
Duck Weed (it looks really pretty from the top. =])

I'm gonna try to incorporate all of these into my 5 gallon one day.

I'm gonna start off with just the swords, an anubias and a moss ball first as I'll be tearing down my tank a lot since I'm a college student. =[ My home is inconveniently far away. =[

EDIT: silk plants are great too but I have trouble finding ones I like. =/

I second the hornwort! I find that it gets rid of ammonia much faster than java moss and it's easy to keep clean. Plus it floats so the bettas love to lounge on it. :) Looks very pretty too.

And you probably already know that my bettas and I dig those floating logs. ;) But I wouldn't recommend that they be kept in a tank that's cycling because I read that someone did so and the high ammonia made the paint chip off. I've had three of these logs for several months and haven't had the paint chip off of any of them... i've never kept them in a tank that's cycling.

I'd also recommend Indian Almond Leaves.. my bettas seem to enjoy hiding under them and the tannins/humic acid from the leaves make them happy.
