A long time ago - 20 plus years - I used to build acrylic aquarium tanks that fit inside the original Apple Macintosh computer from the 80s. It was kind of a thing on the internet in the 90s and I made this one for myself in 1999 and it has been in storage since 2003-ish until just recently.

I pulled it out, cleaned it up, and filled it with water and it's still as good a new. The tank holds about 3 1/2 gallons. I've got an old school under gravel filter and a cheap LED light low behind the front bezel. The aquarium needs to live outdoors on my lanai, so I needed a fish that could take warm water. I filled the tank and watched the temperature for several days and it looks like low to mid 80s will be the summer water temp.

A betta seemed like the logical choice for this tank. I had one or two way back when but I don't know much about them. Got this guy at the local pet store.

Hi everyone I'm working on a 20 gallon hexagon female sorority tank. I will have 4 girls in it but right now there's only 2...so far the 2 in it are getting along great they even swim together peacefully....i think it because they were in a 5 gallon divided tank for few months and got to know each other with the divider as a shield. The other 2 are way smaller and I'm tad worried to introduce them to rhe 2 way bigger ones. Anyways here my set up: drawf hair grass, anubis drawf, Java fern, sword plant, dragon rock (I think) Java moss on a driftwood stick, 4 leaf clover plans and 2 unknow plants

I'd suggest some floating plants on the top of the tank and add more plants.
