Eh...I like all the colours and I love butterflies, but I'm not a fan of artificial-looking fishtanks. I much prefer the natural look.

Possibly the coolest non-natural fishtank I've seen had a sandy bottom and a model galleon half in, half out of the water like it was sinking. That was pretty cool and the fish seemed to love it. :D

That sounds wicked awesome. I saw a neat thing the other day. One of those old airplanes that looked all wrecked. If I had a big enough tank that would look wickedly neat with all natural plants. I like the natural tanks to but I haven't been brave enough to try it plus I love all the color. That butterfly tank would probably freak out my bettas if they were in it. It's very bright.

I'm with Bomba. I love butterflies, but I think I'd rather enjoy them outside. I much prefer the look of natural tanks. But I still like the look of little porcelain signs that say "No Fishing." :3

Also I think that's a barb in there... I really hope there weren't any betta in there.

That's really creative, Shirley!

My daughter loved all the colours. She's a fan of artificial tanks. I prefer natural, and what with my having no sense of colour co-ordination at all this is probably a good thing. I do enjoy looking at others' colourful creations, though. Did you make some of the ornaments yourself?

No this is absolutly not my betta tank. My girls are alone in there own tank and my boys have their own individuals.I don't put any of my bettas with anything else but maybe otto's or corys. My sorority is thick with plants this would be too upen of a layout. Oh and one of my boys has a porcelin sign that says no skinny dipping.

I actually did this to make my neice happy. She loves butterflys. and I love color. I modified a few decorations and made a few. My favorite thing is the driftwood that has the flowers sticking in it.

Oh I knew it wasn't yours. I thought it was someone else's betta tank that you found online. But it's still a cute idea. I've got a little sign that says "No Cats." I'd love to have a no skinny dipping one.

lol yea I am very very picky about what goes in with my bettas. I love my little barbs though I wish I would have known I was overstocking that tank. I got these guys before I know anything really. Just another victom of petstores. Want to cringe? they sold my fiance who isn't knowledgable at all about fish, three paradise fish and said they would be fine together in that ten gallon with three mollys and three barbs. I really hope that my dad (has a 55 gallon) will take all of these guys so I can start the tank new. Because of the overstocking I had to start ich treatments today so unfortunatly I am stuck with this for now. I now have in that tank two barbs, two mollys, and two paradise fish because of my ignorance and the petstores. :(

No cats, thats adorable. I got my sign at walmart. thanks for your opinion on this. I know a lot of fish keepers and I thought about making a few of these and see people would buy this. I love making things.
