This is my custom-built barracks fully set-up and looking the best it has since I purchased it.
It can house 10 bettas, but I have a little CT male bunking in the huge back area as well. I custom built the spraybar out of sprinkler parts and it seems to be working well at circulating water around and distributing heat. Iím going to be running a small sponge filter in each section to aid water movement and boost my biological filtration.
Got a mixed bag of fish in there, from pet store VTs to imported pairs. Everyone seems to be settling in well, and aside from an initial bout of velvet, which I treated no problem, it is going smoothly.
Each compartment holds 2.5 gallons of water, and Iím going to be taking out the anubias and java fern/amazon swords, and replacing them with pygmy chain sword, vallisneria, and hydrilla.
CT male in the back section. Going to be spawning him hopefully with a super blue HMPK female sometime this week.
Also here are two of my shubunkins who went and sulked by the filter as soon as I whipped out the camera. Biggest is around 15-20 cms while smallest is around 10-12cms.
