Thanks a lot I appreciate it. His top fin looks pretty spiky but his rear one is not so I'm thinking your right. Thanks a lot I really appreciate it.

Nice. He's going to love it there...heavily planted tanks are their haven. Was this a petco rescue?

Not petco a local pet store by me. It looks like they take care of them. A lot of them looked very lively. I took this one because he was the most active and attentive of the bunch.
Petco and petsmart seem to be just graveyards I feel bad for them.

Thanks a lot. I'm having a hard time wondering about the cycle for this tank. Since it has so my plants and 1 betta will it even cycle? I know some planted tanks don't even have filters I added 1 small one.
