Nice tank so far! I would get some taller plants or floating ones that will fill some of the empty space at the top. Plus your betta would love to lay in them at the top. I love the little building.

;) Can't wait to see the updates!

Nice tank! You could add in a few cories. Maybe a school of small tetras. Like neons or black neons. Do you already have your betta in there? Because if you do, when you want to add new fish you may want to take him out and redecorate the tank and add him last. Or else he may think the new fish are intruding in his territory.

I bought the aquarium just putting it up until the holidays have past so I can have some time to work with it. I believe that I am going to split in half though and I would like to us the Asian theme on one half. Your aquarium and fish look great.

I have this tank and you can fit a compact fluorescent in the socket. =]

Get a 6,500 Kelvin rating (A.k.a. Daylight) CFL bulb with a low wattage. =]

your plants will do well. =] you might want to look at my thread about the best place to buy your plants from. =] You'll get 10% off. =]

If you get fast growing plants it will help you cycle your new tank. =]
