You're welcome. It is always better to start separate threads for separate topics in the appropriate sub-forum. Breeders might never look here but will read at a thread in the "Breeding" section.

I finished the tank! I really love the decor and It is quite similar to how I first wanted It! I've glued some Christmas moss to both pieces of driftwood and then anubias on top of that. I bought two one-count containers of anubias and there were two plants in both!😂 on the larger driftwood, I added some typed of grass stuff and then covered where it was glued on with a hit more moss just to beaten it up a bit. In the left corner it's 3 mystery plants atop a buried coco mat and a spiraly grass-like plant, there is another spiral plant poking out from under the large driftwood. Then in the left corner is a floating java moss ball (moss balloon) and a banana plant, along with the small driftwood and another anubias. There is also a wallpaper in the bsckground.Enjoy!!

They're upsidedown for some reason 😕 don't know how that happened... If anyone knows what plants those are that I was unsure about, that's great! I do have a betta fry and a Cory cat in there now as I wanted them to be in a bigger tank while I'm on vaca this week.

Aquarium
I like the upside down picks made me wonder at first how in the world you made the tunnel. Just so surreal. But then again anything in aquaplaning is possible.

My fish arrived!! I forgot to update the day I picked them up (Tuesday) but im here now(Wednesday)!! This little guy is super spunky abd curious and loves swimming around his new tank! The purple on his body hasn't quite come back fully yet but his fins are already quite vibrant! He's perfectly happy eating flakes although I havent been feeding him mich since I wasn't sure if I should wait a few days after he's adjusted. Im still trying to come up with a name for him and honestly have zero ideas so far. I am a bit concerned about his back (caudal?) Fin as it does look a little ripped up and was like that since arrival. Does that look like fin nipping to anyone? Ive never seen that before and wanted to ask...

I'll try to get some better pictures soon.

Forgot to mention- i got a free female with him too!! I wasnt expecting one when I bought him but later I asked if I could get a female with him and the seller gave me one free of charge! Her tsnk is not as cool as his yet since I had less time (and money) to prepare but I managed to use some of the extra moss and a chunk of anubias from his tank to make her a little betta hut.

Heres the sellers photo of her since I couldn't get a decent one 20190726_170553_1564779335791.jpg

Do you have the seller's photos of your male?

From your photos he looks to have CT genes? Or a lot of web reduction in the upper caudal.

I rotated your first photos. Could you help me figure something out? Post another photo, any photo, and text of some sort? Only this time put a space between the text and photo. Like below.
