Is my betta's tank "yay" or "nay"?

In the past I've had Skylar in a 1gal and a 2gal. Today i decided to get him a 5gal! It has the "Aqua Tech Power filter 5-15" In it, fake plants, gravel (of course) and a lava rock! I decreased the filter intake by a bit. He's been exploring for a bit now, but not too much since it's close to his bed time and he might be a lil stressed from the move.

So i ask you, Yay or Nay?

I have the same exact tank. Looks good to me. Do you monitor the temp levels, and also did you baffle the filter?

the temp is a little hight at 80. But guess what?! You dont have to baffle the filter! All you have to do is raise the little tubey thingy and it will decrease the intake/flow :D

80 is perfect in my opinion. I love your tank my only thing I'd say add a few more hiding spots like a cave or a coffee cup to hide in so he can be in the dark if he wants too.

It looks lovely, and that big plant is great for a betta! Nice big leaves to rest on! And yes, 80 is perfect, I like to keep my fish at 82, and they have been in water that has reached 86 and still be just fine.
