The only reason I'm "against" small tanks, bowls & vases is that I'd probably end up with a room full of them!

I can't walk pass a shop selling glassware without my imagination going overdrive to all the possibilities...

That is very true but in such a small space the upkeep is a lot water changes almost every day. Even with a filter on this one I like to change my water every 4 days also keeps the algae down. I also work with bowl gardens fairy gardens.

Royal boy is actually going to be upgraded soon to a 10 Gal but this is the temporary tank I made him for the mean time to get him out of the tiny vase my mom had him in its actually a giant Cheese ballz container lol I put a little filter and heater in there he seems to be getting a lot happier already 😋

My betta's silk plants came today! I put them in his tank and he seems to really like them so far. Here's the before and after:

1025143

1025144


I actually bought quite a bit more and was thinking about putting them on the left side, but Fleshy really likes to sit on top of his marimo and leaf bed, so I didn't want anything blocking those off. Plus I need space for his new filter, which should be coming in this week.

I thought it was a 2.5-gallon tank, but after using a 1-gallon bowl to change his water this past week, I realized it's probably a 1.5-gallon. 😅

He's already been swimming around among the new plants a lot, which is nice because when I added his first piece of decor - the leaf bed - he FREAKED out and avoided that side of the tank for hours. I guess he's gotten used to changes by now.

I have a 5.5 gallon tank and on another fish website "Fishlore" people were criticizing me for how small it was. To be honest I had two female betta fish in there. then on who was really big got stuck behind the filter😭. Now I only have Gucci the meaning of my name 😂

I'm on a betta group on FB and they say nothing under 10. I roll my eyes at that, none of mine ever get a 10 to themselves, sorry guys :p

@RussellTheShihTzu, thanks for this thread! It appears that my newest betta can't tolerate being in a larger tank, so I'm having to explore keeping him a small tank. This thread and the original post is providing lots of info and ideas!
