lol me too besides around here this is the only kinda plant they sell in stores that aint on a peice of wood
and there not as big as this1.. lol so i thought goin green in the tank would be nice because well it just looks more natural u dont see all the joints and whatnot. and you know you got a healthier happier fish who wont get hurt by the plastic

and thanks.. my humor is pretty unique i suppose.. im completly serious tho so its both humor and stating the truth ^.^

I just went with another "kitchen sink" theme. I'm so cheap

Caeruleus on the left, Dido on the right



And some old pictures of my other tanks

"Kitchen Sink" sorority



Original "Bach Pad" Aliquis's tank



Aliquis's new and improved "Greco-Roman" tank. Notice how he's under his food hole. I trained him to eat when the tank light went on. Such a clever boy!

I got a question. What can I do to add a background to the outside of my betta's bowl? I've seen the static cling background at pet stores, but can anyone suggest alternatives? I've thought of window/glass markers, but the only problem is I'm not an artist (I am a perfectionist - so this may be a problem if I have to draw.)......

If you have a design you like, draw, trace or print it onto ordinary paper and laminate it. That will water proof it and you can stick it to the back with ordinary tape. You don't even have to laminate it if your tank doesn't drip or anything. Could be tricky fitting something onto a bowl if it isn't a drum-style, though...

I Used some of the oily crap that sells for about 5 bucks in most pet stores to do it. Made for a extremely good job & I couldnt see using tape as it doesnt hold the image to the tank.

Frost it white. I did it on one of my tanks and it came out pretty cool. It has a white frosty background that you don't normally see on tanks. I used a spray paint type product but you can also buy it in a contact paper form.
You can also get other cool contact paper stuff for window treatments that you could use.

Much as I am wedded to the idea of natural tanks and want a whole bundle of different natural looks, I think this could be cool: dividing a custom made tank into seven and having the compartments themed as the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, each with a matching betta. :) Have the gravel coloured but the background black or something so you could still see the betta.
