40 gallon breeder high tech planted betta tank
So, I use to have a 20 gallon.. then I had to move so I upgraded to a 30 but a few weeks ago I found a crack in the 30 so well upgraded to a 40 breeder about a week ago. It's been 2 years of growth for the plants well they moved from tank to tank to tank. The crypt wendii and anubis are pretty much the only things that survived all the moves and still thrived. There is a still an amazon sword but I'm pretty sure it's gonna die. Granted it's still too early to tell. I got the Anacharis and Bacopa monnieri and planted it after this last move. There is some sort of mirco sword plant, I got that a while back at a plant swamp. Can't identify it. All the plants get ferts once a week and the tank is injected with CO2. I think I might go twice a week on the ferts but I dunno how much it'll impact growth. Now that all the plants have been moved I need to let things reroot before I make any more changes.
Any ways I present you two pictures. One of the tank now (That's the black tank) and of the old 20 before the move to the 30 (wood trim tank)
My betta blue (He's a blue VT) doesn't know what to do with himself. He has sooo much water. Definitely an upgrade from the stupid cup he was in when I got him. He spends most of his time in the darkest corner over the crypt wendii of the tank occasionally coming out to flare at something before retreating back. He doesn't really harm anyone in the tank but he definitely has the typical betta attitude of he is the king! I have a smaller tank but I like to keep my betta in a palace.
There is no such thing as ‘Rescuing’ a betta or any fish for that matter from any LFS. Be it petsmart, Petco, or exotic and aquatic’s down the street. You are not ‘rescuing’ anything, you are buying a fish. It doesn’t matter if that fish has fin rot and you are saving it from dying a slow death, you are still supporting an industry that thinks it’s okay for these fish to live in small pint size bowls.
