My favourite theme of all time is Natural.

You could also do the Pirates theme. Space can be entertaining aswell although difficult to find decorations.

Egyptian! I've always wanted to do that. Sand and tomes and Egyptian castles are easy to find!! And great hiding places too ;))

Oriental is nice and it's easy to find Decor for.

Greek is also easy to do and if you use some light colored sand it looks fantastic. =]

I ahve to agree that I'm partial to natural tanks though. =]

Asian! That is where betta's come from, so it makes sense.

I like my betta, Tony's modern 1.5g tank. It has brown/tan gravel with a Java Fern in the middle. It might be harder to make the theme look so modern in a 10g tank, though.

BTW, please post pics after you make up your mind and set up the tank!

Find a decoration (or plant), you really love, and go from that...It can be the center piece (like those room decorating shows talk about), well...when the betta isn't impressing with it's beauty!
Backgrounds can be anything from laminated premade ones, to your favorite work of art printed out.

I like dark gravel personally...It looks cleaner & brings out the fishes coloring (Unless you have a black betta lol)...or natural colored gravel, or sand...

There are also many imitation coral/live rock decorations, you could do faux salt water theme...
Lots of "tiki" items as well...palm trees & huts.
Easter Island heads.
Endless possibilities !!!

Someone on a planted tank forum made this neat looking 'Tomb Raider' inspired tank. It would be fairly easy to replicate something similar, since you could just replace the petrified wood with smooth rocks if you couldn't find any, and most species of Anubias and Java Fern are very low maintenance and easy to grow.

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...as-garden.html

But my favourite type of tanks are natural or biotope style ones. I would love to eventually have a paludarium with ferns and moss growing emersed on a 'bank,' and then have it dropping down into a tangle of driftwood, rocks and dried leaves in the water section.

I've been wanting to do a 'marine' themed tank for a while now.

You could do a desert theme...a theme based on seasons...I did a garden theme once. I had a grass carpet and some flowers and terra cotta pots. it was pretty cute.
