I think I am having serious fish envy over your betta setup. That is nice!

Your new CT male is also very nice looking. Very classy.

thank you very much! i personally LOVE this setup although it means waterchanges.... tbh my fish thrive best in these! i had a 32g divided into 6 sections and somehow it never felt totally right, but these 2.6g are all perfect.

this was my setup about a year ago in my old apartment before i got the divider; i still had a sorority back then too.

It might mean water changes, but they aren't too bad to do. I have over 200 gallons of water in my appartment right now between all my tanks and that only tanks a few hours a week.

The look and the clean appearance of the setup is definitely worth it in my opinion. Probably one of the nicests little setups I have seen. I have to ask if you know what make and model those little tanks are? I am just using standard 5 gallon tetra kits and dividing them into compartments, but I think I like the look of yours better. Might be worth converting my setup in a couple of years when I am out of school.

I am wondering if those could also be drilled to setup a sump system for all the tanks...

Oooo you have my brain worthing now!

thanks kribby! OMG wat???? 200 gallons??? really? jesus i cant even imagine that lol! these 4 tanks take about 15min to do water changes on... its so fast caus i dont have gravel in them. i dont know their make though it doesnt say anywhere. all i know is they're 2.6g and they were about 25$ each (rip off ireland lol)

i had them drilled for a drip system before. i used a shelf i bought in a furniture store, a sort of cube design. it had 9 cubes (3x3 boxes). i used hoses going from a sump tank on the bottom, to the top 3 tanks, and down into the next 3 tanks and down again into the bottom 3 tanks. the idea worked BUT it was way too unstable. one hose got blocked once and i flooded the whole apartment as the pump kept pumping the water up along... i actaully found a tutorial on youtube for it but i didnt build it properly...

ooo, that sounds like a messy situation.... I suppose that is one of those risks wih sump systems. I might wait until I have a basement to do that setup lol. Concrete floors might be the best idea when doing that.

Yeah, I keep african cichlids as well as bettas. So I have some larger tanks too. The Bettas are sort of a balancer for me. If I have large fish I should have little guys too!
