1 male delta tail betta
6 white cloud minnows
possibly some cherry shrimp once the tank has aged a little bit more. its only about a month old now.
i would have loved to do a paludrium but because of space and the need to keep it simple i had to go with a traditional tank. but i decided to add a waterfall to break the flow because bettas battle with heavy current.i planted it with some terrestrial mosses and some spagyphyllum sp.please let me now what you you think
I love the setup. It's very nice. The central filter (i'm guessing its a filter or at least serves its purpose) is pretty cool.
You'll be fine without a lid because although bettas are jumpers you don't have the water level up to the top. From the pictures it looks like the betta would have to be an Olympic athlete to jump out of that tank.
thanks everyone the tanks on here are so well done i feel almost embarrassed putting this one up. jup bettas are jumpers but i've purposely kept the water level low as per advise i recieved on another forum and the only hiccup i've had so far is the neighbours cat coming to see if he could catch breakfast.
well i got bored today and changed things around lol which i tend to do until i settle. the problem i had with this setup is that the rock formation i built is bigger than i planned it to be so it looked extremely cramped and while cleaning it out today i noticed when i took the smaller bit out on the right i found it gives alot more swimming room so i moved it out and put it in the outside pond for now so the moss doesnt die and will see how i feel after a week. i also moved all the bacopa to the right hand side and all the hm to the left so i'd have a solid wall of it on one side. i would love to build some sort of sump to hide the hard wear as its an eyesore and takes up alot of valuable space but as this is a commune tank its got to be easy to pack up and move when i go home for holidays so i dont know. since removing the formation i spread the hairgrass out abit more.
i forgot to add that i dose sera florenna and excel, though i've stopped the ferts as i have an algae explosion so dont want to fertilize to much for now.
oh and @ betta maniac i live in pretoria at the moment but my folks stay in joburg
