Named after Ronnie James Dio? Or "god" in Italian?

My friend likes the driftwood.. but suggests that I go with a few more thicker pieces... I;m thinking of making this an anubias themes tank... It could go really well if I do it right

It finally started working after a whole day of trying. Just in time too.
It was sort of scary lol... But I'm happy it eventually worked.
Now I'm just trying to figure out what the heck else to plant in there...

By the way I tried looking up the betta's but I couldn't find anything like them as I wanted to find out how much they tend to cost?

Those are form breeders in Thailand... They post their bettas an aquabid.com
Those are all from the halfmoon section form a breeder called aquastar1...
If you dont see any check back often... they are constantly posting new betta's.
On average its about $75... The fish is normally $20 - $40.. And the fee is $5.. And the shipping is $35.. So.... Expensive... but they live for 4 years... and are beautiful. SO worth it I think.

Ok... Now...
I get the plants I ordered tomorrow.. or should be getting it tomorrow. The shipping tracker says tomorrow. My question for you guys is... where should the mini pellia go on the wall? I'm not exactly sure how this stuff grows.. I;m also getting fissidens and anubias nana petite... 5 rhizomes... 5 leaves each..
I would like to know.. based on what ive said about my tank... what you guys would do at this point.. plant suggestions.. placement suggestions... anythign
Pretty please?!?!?
It came witha filter... so.. I can put off buying a better one till I get fish. This one will probably mainly be used for water flow... I will need to get a heater and substrate though.. The heater is causing a hitch in my plans.. $40 for plants put a deep cut in my poor teenager budget.

Anubias minima would look good with the petite, maybe mix in some Cryptocoryne here and there for a little different color and height. Then maybe add a few Eriocaulon Mato Grosso, that would definitely make us hate this tank more Hate the tank, hate the slate, hate the concept. Definitely subscribed

Keep us posted with some more pics, would you, please? VERY interested in the background thing, good job.

How funny.. I was totally staring at the minima and crypts today.. Just not sure which crypt I should try and order.
That grosso stuff looks awesome.. and hard to grow.. lol

I suppose I should tell everyone now.. that... I have come to hate the driftwood.. I spent all this time cleaning it.. and now I hate it.. I'll find a picture of it with the driftwood in it and post it.
