New uses for old betta homes :P

So I think most of us have been there. You buy a betta in a little bowl or tank. You upgrade later. Now you've got this... bowl. This bowl you probably paid enough money for to not just wanna toss it.

So, I propose; Recycled betta bowl (or other small home) ideas!

We have our standard; roomy spot to sit during water change. Place to hide extra graven and decor. But... none of these are really appealing. How about....

Mairmo moss ball mansion?
Mini aqua garden?
Mini terrarium?
My new choice... Lucky bamboo pot :P

I've been wondering what to do with all our bowls now that we have the 20gal tanks XD We had a nice little bar theme with the 1.75 gal brandy glasses and the 1 gal bowls beside them for the littler ones, but now that everyone's been moved into the bigger tanks we're looking at a table full of bowls going "...what do we do with them? =/"

Moss garden sounds like an excellent idea! Start cultivating moss or make a mini-garden. Just gotta keep it out of reach of the roommate's cats.....

Im currently growing my own bonsai trees at the moment...raising them from tiny little seeds. Its my first time and takes a lot of paitence, research and time but Im off to a good start. Im thinking of using Suki's old bowl as a bonsai pot. :)

I have thought about using mine for a shrimp tank, but the boyfriend says that a 5 gallon betta tank and a 10 gallon tarantula tank are enough to haul 3 hours home at semester change. :(

Haha, keeping some shrimp in one sounds pretty cool, actually. Maybe combine it with the mariomo mansion idea. :P

I have actually never heard of that. How do I do that?

Do you know where I can get Marimo cheap? At my LPS they have one big one for like 10 bucks and I want a cheaper one.


I absolutely love my shrimp. They are very cute. Just as fun as a fish. Seriously!
