How's my setup

I want advice from you guys and gals on how my tank looks I just redid the tank and if you have anything to say about how I can make it better leave your comments on here. It is a 5 gallon planted and filtered tank (trying to get money to buy a heater)
Thanks for your help

Really nice tank, its really beautiful!

I have something bad to say about it...
The gravel is coloured, aint it? Coloured gravel is not really good because, in long term, it will release the paint into the water, making your aquarium dirty. Whenever you can, buy simple river gravel or sand, which is better.

Thanks for the compliment

And really it leeks into the water? That's good to know, thanks for telling me about that

If the gravel is meant for an aquarium use, I can't imagine it being harmful in anyway to the fish

I usually dont like colorful gravel...but I think the pink looks really nice with your betta..The only thing I see concerning is the other fish in there in a 5 gallon... it looks like you have plenty of live plants to eat some ammonia but 5 gallon is pretty small for more than 1 fish...I would make sure to keep check on parameters and not skip any water changes.Other than that it looks really nice!

*edit*
am i seeing things or is there a baby guppy in there? If so you might want to put the little baby in a new tank so he doesn't get ate.

Looks good, I'm just wondering what those plants are on the right. Tall and skinny stem with the leaf on the water surface?
