Hmm. Ok my dad has a pretty good sized shop so I can drill holes. But before I get the baby I will have the water tested at my LFS to make sure it's ok.

Okey dokey! Make sure the holes are really small though.

Do you guys use filters in your baby tanks? I bought a ten gallon kit and divided it. I haven't put the filter in it yet because I wasn't going to be home to watch the baby whose side it will be on.
It's a tetra 10i, internal filter. I'm a little worried the suction will be too strong. Do you guys have any experience with this filter or something similar?

I don't have a filter in my baby's tank yet since he's so small and I do a water change everyday anyway. I just have an airstone to move the water for the heater. I'll probably put the filter in once he gets bigger.

You can use filter's but I would throw caution for the tetra 10i. I used to have it and I hated it, way too much flow and intake suction, it would just pull a baby right in HOB (hang on back) filters are generally much better and gives you more room in the tank which I like

Great- thank you! Yeah, it is huge. I thought I might give it a shot since it came with the tank (which was a great deal even without the filter btw). I'll get another hob. :)

Oh- and Thing One is doing great! Thanks so much for your help. You were right about everything.

I haven't posted in this thread in quite some time, but here are some before and after pictures of my baby, Phoenix! It's been nearly 5 months since I brought home this itty bitty, freezing and starved baby home. She's become the sweetest and most curious of my bettas.

Aww she's so pretty! :)
I just saw an egg spot on my baby so I can finally guess it's a she! It's so cool watching them grow, I feel like she gets bigger everyday.
