New Custom Tank

So after several attempts to make my tank water proof it finally is!
The tank contains 3 albino cory catfish and 1 VT betta.

Very nice!
Did you make the whole thing yourself?
I really really love the look of the wood on it.

It's really pretty, but I have to say, Cories should be in at least 10 gallons, preferably with a wide bottom. That isn't enough surface area for them to forage, and the gravel looks rough.

I agree with Sweeda..

Cories prefer a softer substrate because they burrow and dig around with their whiskers. They also require at least ten gallons and should be in groups of 5 or more, with 4 being probably the lowest you could go. Sorry :/

Nice! The wooden frame makes it look like an art piece if you look at it directly, (you know those paintings with wooden frames around it, haha. ^^)

Thanks for the complements on the tank.
Sweeda88 and turtle10 thanks for the tip about the cory's, I can't do much about the tank size, the bottom is 12x12. However I'll find some finner substrate.
