Future 2gal. planted betta tank!

This tank is so lovely to me I have trouble concentrating on homework while sitting at my desk.
Java fern
Anacharis
Marimo ball
Banana lily
Unknown sproutlet
Gravel, rocks, castle etc. =)
Guppies are keeping the tank cycled and pretty while I wait for my Betta.
Penn Plax mini filter... which is lovely, very little current but does the job well
And a tetra mini 25 watt submersible filter for 78 degree water at all times.
2 gallon glass cookie jar.
25 watt full spectrum light just above the lid.

Will be a home for my Betta! My last one just died from a severe temperature fluctuation overnight. He got sick immediately after and never recovered. =P
Will never keep in a heater-less bowl again.
I hope everyone forgives me.
R.I.P Pavel.

At least he didn't die in vain. I learned.

Serena

p.s not visible but there is a heavy glass lid on this tank so there will be no jumping out.

so coolio c:

we have very similar tank lights!
also- you should remove the lid. A betta needs 24/7 access to the surface with open air. You could use plastic wrap and a rubber band as a lid. Just poke holes. If you use a nice rubber band, do it neatly, and make some frill around the band it can look just as niice!

Someone one here with a jar wedged something small under the lid to keep it slightly cracked, but impossible for fish to jump out of! I think it might have been a wad of clear tape? You could do that if you want :P

I love your jar, your fish will love it! :)

I am sorry about your previous betta though :( We all make mistakes, I pretty much killed a goldfish a couple years ago. I had NO CLUE how to take care of fish!

The electrical cord from my heater keeps the lid propped open for enough air to circulate in and out of the jar. You plan on filtering it so that will also keep the lid open too.

@ anglnarnld: You can get them at walmart and target for ~$7 for a gallon and ~$10 for a 2 gallon. They are located in the kitchen wares section.

The filter in the backround is perfect for bettas! I've used it on almost all my spawns and pet bettas.

It's just a cookie jar. Also you need both heater and filter for your bettas. The little filter can be found at PetCo and heaters, well really any petstore.

I still don't see why people buy tiny (like 2 gallons) containers for $10 when 10 gallon tanks are like $8. Well space plays a part too I guess :P
