Nice set-up! ^.^ Black gravel in my experience REALLY makes the colors bounce. My Bowser (in avatar) seems ultra red against his black gravel ^.^

Not all plants are high maintenance! Trust me, if I can keep java fern and marimo moss alive ANYBODY can!! And they're such easy beginner plants, don't require special light or fertilizers. They keep ammonia levels safe (well, my tanks are changed every couple of days so I'm actually worried about ammonia)

Can't wait to see what fish you get! Are there any fish you noticed while out that you really like? I find myself thinking about bettas a lot, even when my mom was getting one I was thinking about all the colors there would be and what colors would go with the tank and accessories she got !! lol

I would highly recommend getting Prime. It's a wonder-product. Make sure you get quality pellets as well if you are getting a betta. Remember, their stomach is about the size of their eyeball too, so feed accordingly.

I definitely will not forget! I will be posting the progress of the tank as I go on, I am thinking of getting a Crown Tail.

Unfortunately I'll have to see if I can find some Canadian stores that sell Prime.

If they don't, don't sweat it. There are other great conditioners out there.

Okay thank you! I feel as though this site should have a chat room or something for people to just talk about stuff instead of waiting for posts xD

I'm so excited to be going out tomorrow morning and seeing who I have to pick from :P

Remember, even some bettas that may look less than desirable in the store can turn out to be total beauties. When kept in good conditions with proper food, even the ugliest duckling can turn into a swan.

Rather than the chicken wire, which everyone has pointed out the issues with, why not use clingfilm/gladwrap/whatever it is called in Canada? No little gaps for bettas to jump out that way. :)
Alternatively, I believe Olympia has made a lid out of plastic cardboard.
