My Tanks/background question

Since I already posted pics of my 40 gallon sorority tank, I thought I would post pics of the other two tanks too. The hex is a 5 gallon with Apollo and 2 Amano Shrimp in it. The other is a 15 gallon with Saphira and three Julli Cory Cats. I may add a few shrimp or maybe Otos to this tank later.

I also attached a pic of the 40 again, just so they are all here. It has 7 female bettas, 6 24K white cloud mountain minnows, 5 otocinclus, 3 angelicus loaches and 6 amano shrimp.

As you can see, I love AquaClear sponges to use as a baffle and a pre-filter on all my tanks...

Also, do any of you have any good ideas for backgrounds on the male betta tanks. No matter what I use, Saphira sees his reflection and will spend hours flaring at himself. Just for the picture, I threw a black pillow case over the back and, as you can see in the pic, he is back there checking himself out and flaring... The 40 breeder divides two rooms, so it is viewable from all sides. I just throw a blanket over the back to take pictures.

Try putting more decor around the sides maybe. You can also attach a dark blue piece of paper to the sides, that should help get rid of the reflection. Just don't use black or white paper because this can increase the reflection.
