Pretty sure this is a 2.5 gallon tank. Remember, the volume measurement assumes you fill to the rim and it doesn't account for decor/substrate displacing water. If you filled it totally bare to the rim, it would be 2.5 gallons.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:

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.
