Planted Ripariums for Bettas
I am starting this thread for a general discussion on keeping bettas in planted ripariums. Ripariums are a fairly new kind of planted aquarium that feature marginal aquatic plants growing in the space above the aquarium water. There are a lot of really great plants that grow well in ripariums and they make great habitats for aquarium fish, with excellent biological filtration and natural cover.
I am working on putting together a little riparium setup for one of my bettas, but still trying to decide on which tank to use. I might use the 11.4G rimless tank that I used for this other riparium planting...
However, in order to use that aquarium with a betta I might have to lower the water quite a bit to prevent a jump out of the tank. I have wondered how many inches of vertical a betta can clear(???).
Well this is just a start on this anyway. I have some pictures I can dig up to explain more about ripariums. I might also start a journal thread for the betta setup that I want to do.
