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 asRescuing’ 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.

The tanks are great. well planted and lots of cover for everyone. I would think Palace is not the right word. here for your betta, I would say country. Now that's living large.

Love the upgrade! I would waste a lot of time watching that tank if it were mine. What all tankmates does blue have in there?

I got a big reclining chair that not to far form it that I've just sat in and watched the tank.

The 30 was kind of became a catch all. So far the stocking is:

9 ember tetra (Also had them since the 20 gallon)
6 bronze cory (Had them since the 20 gallon)
2 platy (My daughter wanted to pick out some fish for the tank and that's what she got)
2 rosy barbs (Don't really know if they actually are rosy barbs.. They are like an inch bigger then any rosy barb I've seen in a store. Got them from a friend)
then Blue the betta

I bought out my walmart's last few fish they had in their tanks just so they won't have to sit in those horrible tanks any more. They are getting rid of the whole fish system to replace it with dog food. A win win in my books. Anyways I picked up 6 yellow and 1 red glofish zebra danio I'll add to the tank as they are in QT. Stocking will be a bit high after they are added but I got a Cascade 1000 canister on the tank and clearly it's pretty heavy on plants. I angled the outflow of it so it doesn't blow Blue away, as long as he doesn't swim in front of it he can go anywhere in the tank just fine.
