Cool What is a Great Way to Decorate My Fish Container?

Hi! I want you guys to please give me some ideas on how to make my fish container STYLISH! I want it to be really nice! Here's a picture of my bettas container:




Any ideas on how to make it nice? It looks kind of boring. It's just a medium sized container made for bettas. Please, if you have any ideas or suggestions, please tell!! Thanks!!

Maybe some flame moss grew on the rocks.

Plants are a major help in design, fake or real. Your betta will like a gave of some sort. I build mine one out of natural river rocks in two piles and then a large flat rock on the top.
I found cheap methods of this on here, coffee mugs, terracotta pots, etc.

Look around you will be surprised what you can find to make your tank look nice.

I'm curious about Mr. Jingles' tank - is there a reason why it's so small? I'm genuinely curious because some people have their bettas in smaller tanks for a specific reason, usually as a hospital tank.

If that's his regular tank, I highly recommend upgrading him to something bigger before investing in decorations :)

Oh, no! It's not THAT small, you see! It's big enough for my fish, and I cannot afford a HUGE tank right now... I can fit decorations in it, trust me! ;)

I happen to know that tank is one of those small designer tanks. It's either a .5 gallon or a .8 gallon (product page here). It isn't much bigger than a .3 gallon.

No one is saying to go out and buy the biggest 50 gallon tank you can find. There are plenty of inexpensive 2.5 gallon tanks to be found. I just bought one at Petsmart for $18 CDN (which would be much less in the US). Thrift stores and Craigslist are also excellent places to find tanks at extremely low prices.

Save your decor money for now and put it towards upgrading the tank :)

The only reason I brought it up because you could take it back and get a bigger thank for equal or less of the price you paid for that
