So where is that tank from anyway? Is it actually a fish tank or was it meant for something else? I want! :P

Ooh such nice plants on your fridge. XD

I rescued this particular tank from the curb, but I remember seeing them a few years ago offered by Carolina Biological Supply. I have looked again but they apparently don't carry them anymore and only have some cheap plastic and glass aquariums.

I wish I could figure out who manufactured it and whether or not they still make them(????).

Also, do you happen to be from ThePlantedTank.net? I recognize your username and I know you are really popular over there. I remember doing alot of research over there ever since I started using live plants and more recently setting up my riparium. I think I remember seeing that vase setup over there as well.
Yeah I think that this little tank should be sufficient. The fish that I got is on the small side and it might not grow a whole lot larger. I will also do frequent water changes with conditioned water.

Is there are such thing as dwarf betta varieties??

Yes I post quite a bit over there at PlantedTank.net/forums

There are lot os other plants that can grow well as emergents above the water in a fish tank. A lot of them could be good choices for betta setups.

No, not really..And the smaller ones (usually the shorter finned fish) need more space to zip around in. :c
