Hey guys. I have a question, I want to get this hood for my 10 gallon:

And this light:

Do you think these lights will be good enough for my plants? They said Low Light at the store. If you know any other hoods and lights for a 10 gallon tank please send me the links so I can see :)

Planted tanks and bettas are my thing

I think if I have time this week I'll do a little "test" with Kiko. I'll put one of my community fish on the other side. Maybe the male swordtail. I will be there prepared with my net in case of an attack. I just want to see how Kiko will act with another fish on the other side. Depending on his reaction it will affect my whole plan xD soo.. Kiko please don't be vicious.

This week is going tobe a busy Week, I have so much to do with school. I'm getting really excited to divide the tank and get more bettas. I think I'm coming closer to getting a dumbo betta :D I have been reading a lot of journals and I hope mine is like that one day. It's hard to update constantly with only one betta and a community tank xd I need to head to the dollar store soon to buy the mesh and binders for the dividers. I wish I had an exact measurement for the mesh, mine seem either too small or to big/curved in the middle when I cut it and can't seem to get it right. I think this weekend I'm going to return my light. I want to buy an actual cover and light, at the moment I'm using lights from Ikea and no cover XD Jeez. I'll try to update some more soon.

I was watching Kiko and my dad came in and went to point at him and Kiko freaked out! Then once my dad left I put my finger up to him and he just flared at me xD so adorable. I think Kiko has more red. My parents told me and I looked and its true! I'm sorry I haven't posted many pics. I have to take them from my phone, email them to my laptop and then post them xD it's a pain. I'm not sure if anyone is following along anyways but I like writing all the things that happen throughout the time and I can see how things changed. If I even look back a week or two you can see how much the 10 gallon has changed :D

I'm supposed to get a message from the people with dumbo bettas today or tomorrow so I'll update any news related to actually buying the new bettas. I'm really nervous but excited :D hope everything turns out good for me.

Guys I'm so excited! I might be getting dumbo bettas soon. I'm not sure 1 or 2 but the guy Is willing to sell me 2. He sent me pics of the options which I'll attach later when I go on my laptop :) I already know which one I want but he also showed 3 more which I'm not 100% sure which I want. I really think I might finally get my dumbo bettas :')

I just wanted to share these pics of the dumbo bettas I plan on getting. I want to get 2. The one I'm getting for sure are the last two pictures. I have no idea what other one I want so any advice or tips would be great.

I like this guy, he is $25.

I have never had a plakat, and the guy said he is really speedy and hard to take pics of. I'm not sure if a divided tank is best for him if hes super active. ($10)

And finally.................. the one I am in love with ($30-$40)

the drive might be about 30mins-1 hour. I still have to convince my mom to take me.. I'm nervous. I don't want to tell her the price. But if she loves me she'll understand I know these aren't breeding perfect bettas but I'll love their company :)

Happy one month for Kiko! Here are some pics :) I hope he handles the change well. He'll always be my first betta and i hope he lives a long time. I can almost guarantee some will be sideways, sorry in advance.

Typical me, it's 11:11 pm and I decide I might only divide my 10 g into 2. As you all know I was going to divide it to 3 sections and have my 5 gallon for a dwarf puffer. But I don't want to order them and I'm not sure if I can care for it as well. So I will be probably putting Kiko in the 5 gallon (still need to see how the fish react In a divided tank. I might be doing a switch depending on that. If I do come across a betta I really like I can divide the 10 g to 3 or use my old 2.5 Gallon. Oh god... It's happening. Betta obsession.

Quick little update: I'm pretty nervous, huge rainfall and it's thundering and lots of lightning. I just don't want the power to go out, all my tanks heaters and filters would stop working and I'm not sure how to handle that especially if it happens over night. Wish me luck.

As for the fish, I'm getting 2 bettas. The one I fell in love with and one I haven't posted on this thread. I'll post a pic tomorrow. He' s a beauty :) they'll be in a split 10 gallon. I just need to double check With my mom that she's okay to drive there, if so, I can probably go get them this Sunday. If not, next. I'm very excited. I think I might stop by the store to get the mesh and divider supplies. It's only about a 10 minute walk but it's pouring rain lately. *Lightning flashes so bright I see my backyard* sigh. Well I've been trying to think of names for the 2 dumbos I'm getting, any tips are appreciated. I have to see their personalities first before I make a decision of course!

I would be careful with betta buying. One turns to five then five turns to ten and ten turns to fifty.
